First 3-D Printed Wheelchair Unveiled in London

We here at United Spinal Hudson Valley are so excited about what the future of 3-D printing will mean for people with SCI/D. Just check out this article spotlighting Layer, a company that has created a customized, 3-D printed wheelchair!

Via CNN:

 

“If Benjamin Hubert gets his way, the days of the one-size-fits-all wheelchair could be numbered.

 

For millions of users, the essential mobility device can feel clinical, mechanical and uncomfortable. Now the British industrial designer thinks he’s found the answer: 3D-printing.

 

His agency, Layer, is using 3-D digital data to map biometric information. The technology allows the design team to create a bespoke wheelchair that fits an individual’s body shape, weight and disability.”
