Those of us who use manual wheelchairs are often forced to accept certain environmental limitations. Whether it’s broken pavement on a sidewalk, missing curb cuts, steep hills, or simply rough terrain, necessity forces wheelchair users to become experts at navigation. On the flip side, however, new accessible technology also means that these types of challenges can be overcome. More specifically, thanks to the dedicated work of a group of engineers, there’s now a wheelchair designed especially for off-road terrain: the GRIT Freedom Chair.
At Grit, we're committing to bringing the Freedom Chair to as many people as possible, regardless of income. In previous blog posts, we've talked about different types of financial support available for adaptive sports equipment, and put together a list of Financial Loan Programs. Today's topic? Creating a successful crowdfunding campaign.
