Phlegon Wheelchair

Imagine spending an entire day sitting in a chair no getting up or relief from being in one position is easier than it sounds. This feeling is something anyone who uses a wheelchair can attest to; while the freedom is fantastic, the design needs a fresh breath of air. This prompted the designers to design a powered wheelchair for utmost comfort and ease of use in varied situations. The resulting blueprint is a balanced combination of postural support, propulsion, portability, stability, and flexibility of use while outdoors.

Phlegon was designed by a group of designers who wanted to bring about a change in the perspective of society on how they look at users with paraplegia. They were driven towards providing relief and freedom to the users. The resulting blueprint is a balanced combination of postural support, propulsion, portability, stability, and flexibility of use while outdoors. Wheelchair users often face frustrating limitations due to the existing wheelchair designs and the risk of injury. The dependence on others in getting on/off the wheelchair, pressure soars, bumpy roads, or reaching the higher place is another difficulty they have to deal with daily for daily tasks resulting in emotional stress.
