Backcountry Wheelchair

The backcountry wheelchair was inspired by a backpacking trip where a wheelchair user found that the current offered wheelchair was inadequate for maneuvering down fire trails or around camp since there was no way to back up the wheelchair. This project thus endeavors to build a custom, lever driven off-road wheelchair out of aluminum parts machined at Humanmade. Once the wheelchair is complete, there may be an electric motor added to make it easier to move around camp. Jason has put a lot of hours designing and machining the parts on a CNC mill and lathe.
