BLUMIL ELECTRIC WHEELCHAIR FOR DIFFERENT DISABILITIES

When I made the Blumil electric wheelchair, I was thinking mainly of it being suitable for me. I have a spinal cord injury at c5/c6 level. After a lot of adjustments and design changes I was able to ride it very comfortably. When I had an idea of introducing it to a wider audience and starting production I consulted the project with a lot of people.

FROM A WHEELED CHAIR TO THE BLUMIL ELECTRIC WHEELCHAIR

Have you ever wondered what’s the origin of an electric wheelchair? The history takes us back far, far into the past…

Being in a wheelchair didn’t mean that I can’t go out or enjoy things, but my options were limited, even when using an electric wheelchair. Whenever I went somewhere with my friends, we always had to stick to pavements or we had to view things from the car, unless I had an all – terrain off road wheelchair, which was too heavy to transport!

ON THE BLUMIL THROUGH THE FIELDS

Blumil ride on the field

I was walking my dog in the countryside and decide to take a shortcut through a field on my normal i2 tires. No problem passing. I think my dog is one of the greatest fans of the Blumil. Now she has a chance to cover vast distances with me. Riding through the field was actually a fantastic experience, and it wouldn’t have been possible on a regular or electric wheelchair.
