Identification and Background ¶
The GEN_1 wheelchair was designed for rugged terrain. Using parts already in existence, such as a resin lawn chair and durable mountain bike tires, the GEN_1 is a low-cost, effective wheelchair.
The GEN_1 ships complete with its distinguishable white resin seating system, a custom steel frame, durable mountain bike tires, thick castor wheels, and necessary tools to properly assemble the wheelchair.
Soon after the GEN_1 wheelchair, the GEN 2 wheelchair was created. The GEN_2 wheelchair was designed to be more adjustable and adaptable for different body sizes.
Recently, the GEN_3 wheelchair was released. This wheelchair is very similar to the GEN_2 as it is also adjustable. In addition, this wheelchair is also collapsible.
