Transporting camping gear by wheelchair

- an option for people with disabilities

Description
The user is an outdoor person and has hiked and camped countless times. For shorter outings he packs his equipment on the wheelchair. Heavier objects are packed in a bag that is attached under the wheelchair seat, lighter objects are packed in bags that are transported on the backrest and between the userís legs. The dog, who is often his hiking buddy, gets to carry his own food, see photo 4.

Authors comments
