Designers Julia Kaisinger, Mathias Mayrhofer and Benesch Xiulian worked together to create the CARRIER Wheelchair to insure the user is completely independent and capable of traveling over any terrain and in any situation. The “Galileo Wheel” adds climbing traction to climb the stairs. The standing position allows the user to be at eye level of other people as well as adding the ability to reach things that previously could not reached from a seated position. Another design element would eliminate the need to physically transfer to a toilet seat.
The design concept was turned into a wheelchair prototype by the designers for a University of Applied Arts project in the Studio Industrial Design 2 Esslinger (Vienna).
