Craig Bainton

Craig Bainton, a final-year transport and product design BA student at Coventry University, has designed a powered wheelchair which balances on a sphere to allow for good manoeuvrability. Banton says, ‘I embarked on this project as I have a sister with disabilities and I’ve always found the type of wheelchair she uses to be very inadequate. Wheelchair design has not really changed much since Victorian times.’
