  • Loose stone and gravel present a big challenge.
  • Wrist and forearm injuries are an issue for 80% of wheelchair users.

As a state well known for its outspoken and forward-thinking individuals who are advancing the issues of our time: human rights, socially-conscious business practices, international land mine issues, women's issues, environmental issues

There is an opportunity to expand the envelope with one more. . .

Real mobility options in environments that present an impossible challenge to anyone who uses a push rim wheelchair.
