We, at Continuum, collaborated with the Mobility Lab out of MIT to help them visualize a first-world application for their lever-driven, third world mobility aid. The idea was that, with a first world application, they would be able to utilize the dollars generated from the sales of their wheelchair to help fund chairs for people in need in third world countries.
The design of the first-world version of the Freedom Chair was driven by then Senior Designer Jung Tak (now at Google). My role was in design support, client interfacing, directing the design and implementation effort of a full scale prototype, and directing the marketing and communication efforts.
Role: Design Manager
