hublesswheelchair JqUdH 17621
With latest developments in technology, modern designers seems to prefer the minimalistic approach in their designs. Inspired by the hubless motorcycles and bicycles, designer Jonathan O’Conner has designed a ‘hubless wheelchair’ that will make commuting effortless for the physically challenged. Intended for young and active disabled individuals, the hubless wheelchair comes with a supportive mesh fabric seat suspended on a lightweight carbon fiber frame. The pushrim, extends past the tire and connects to the rotating center-free rim, while the outer rim (tire and pushrim) bear down on a non-rotating inner rim that is directly attached to the frame. Hubless wheels not just give a sleek look to the wheelchair, but they also help the user to move freely and briskly without putting too much effort.
