The Reagiro

The Reagiro is a manual wheelchair that engages the upper body as a steering tool.

As opposed to the slow and labour-intensive stop-and-turn method, The Reagiro offers an intuitive motion technique. Linking a backrest that tilts side-to-side with the wheelchair’s front wheel, the user leans to generate the turn. By freeing the use of their hands, the design enables wheelchair users to hold items such as smartphones or umbrellas. The device’s core components are 3D-printed to ensure an individual fit and maximum comfort. By reforming the manual wheelchair, The Reagiro adds an organic and adventurous rhythm to the user’s everyday experience.
