How can the everyday life of wheelchair users be facilitated and enriched? A team of wheelchair users, technicians and designers has worked together on need analysis, idea development, prototyping and testing for solutions for wheelchair add ons. Not only the usability, but also the aesthetic side was taken into account: "We want the wheelchair not to look like old school medical equipment and but to look cool and contemporary" says Raul Krauthausen a project participant. The lighting set open°lights is one of our designs that we developed and improved with several testing rounds. There are two common shapes that we call the I and the O. The I is used for front lights and the floor light. The O is used for a backlighting. The interface of the lights is easy to handle.
With the help of open source instructions and maker technologies in Fab Labs our products can be build and customized by the users.
To get started please download the Thing Files and open the Open Lights DIY Manual.
The "Made for my Wheelchair" project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Project partners are Makea Industries GmbH, beable e. V. the Otto Bock Mobility Solutions GmbH and the Sozialhelden e.V ..
