New wheelchairs made by 3D printing
June 24, 2016
Benjamin Hubert, director of a London-based design agency has come up with a new way of designing wheelchairs which could change the wheelchair industry and the users who rely on them.
Called GO wheelchair, it is made by mapping the individual user's biometric information and then feeding the info into a 3D-printing software.
The chair is then made according to the needs of each user and matches specific body measurements, weight and kind of disability.
