Designworks collaborated with BMW and the US Paralympic Track and Field team to develop a Paralympic Racing Wheelchair customized for world-class athletes. Designers immersed themselves in the challenges of the athletes to understand what’s needed to win. The outcome: a wheelchair using aerodynamics, lightweight materials and extensive ergonomic analysis to optimize athletic performance.
