I am a Design and Technology student studying for my second year of A-levels. My current project is an attachment to a wheelchair to assist wheelchair users on a day-to-day basis, from shopping to safe guarding phone and keys, all within reaching distance of the user.
The idea revolves around having the same usability of a rucksack or backpack, but specifically for a wheelchair user.
I wish to know what issues need to be addressed concerning the safety or the functionality of the product as I plan to enter the design into the Designweek competition to start up manufacture of this item.
Your input would be greatly appreciated. Any thoughts would be invaluable to assist my design.
