Carrier

Carrier

The Carrier is an advanced wheelchair for handicapped and temporarily disabled people. It is an approach to give disabled people freedom in everyday life. One of these problems is using a toilet with standard size. The carrier rolls directly over the toilet and opens the seat, so the user doesn't have to get off the wheelchair. If there is no elevator and you have to pass some stairs the Carrier has wheels which opens like a curb chain. The height is adjustable which allows the user to reach higher items, or talk to standing people on the same eye level. In addition the backrest can be folded away for more comfortable seat change.
