“Disability need not be an obstacle to success” - Stephen Hawking There are many battles going on in today's world, like fighting for our climate. However, an overlooked battle that a billion people go through is the fight against disability discrimination. We found a design to help wheelchair users increase the range of activities they were able to do, following the actions of a crab. We were fascinated when we found out just how powerful a crab's claws are, and decided to help people with it.

We have created an adaptation of a wheelchair to help those who are wheelchair bound and have a limited range of actions that they can perform. Our aim is to encourage independence which will go on to show that people who are disabled can do anything that we can, with the right equipment. We aim to make millions of peoples lives easier by buying a simple appliance to add onto a wheelchair, something they are familiar with.
