Designability has designed the world's first accessible pushchair suitable for manual wheelchair users, developed with mass manufacture in mind. The pushchair can be used by a disabled parent or carer, or those who are non-disabled - one product for everyone.
Our design replaces the traditional rear wheels/footbrake assembly, turning any conventional pushchair into an accessible pushchair.
Designability has been aware of the need for this product for many years. Our most requested product, we estimate that there are around 20,000 disabled parents in the UK alone who could benefit.
