A way to get more disabled people involved in exercise?

I have been given a design brief at university to design a new piece of sports equipment for a disabled person to help them get more involved in sport and exercise and I have decided to go in the direction to help people in wheelchairs as there aren’t many gyms that are wheelchair accessible.

I have also found out that not many wheelchair users go to the gym as they feel embarrassed at the gym.

If you have any suggestions on what I could design to help wheelchair users get more involved in exercise I would appreciate it.

  1. Hi Sam,
    It sounds like a great idea to make exercise more accessible to people with disabilities, maybe Zach Anner will give you some inspiration! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqEQ4SSdZAs&list=PLKid_CNBQaE7a_lDb6HCRJe1eSlRrQ9KW&index=16

    One of the coolest products i’ve come across recently is designed to help rehabilitate after injury, maybe a product that could be used inside or outside of a gym would be useful? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2tdmUSVFzE

    Good luck! Lynnette @DEMAND
