New height adjustable wheelchair design unveiled

A design firm from Leicester, which has worked on Rolls Royce, Aston Martin and Triumph motorbikes is unveiling its latest creation today, a new wheelchair for young people.

The chair, has a seat which goes up and down, enabling disabled children to be at the same height as their friends.

The Renfrew Group who specialise in motorbikes were asked by the NHS to come up with the design prototype. It is hoped it will go into full production.
