Designer Jairo da Costa Junior is envisioning a set of wheelchairs for handicapped folks inspired by Mark Zupan, the captain of America’s quad rugby team. Clearly these are not your granddaddy’s wheelchairs, and if developed into a product, would be used by intense athletes that can not be slowed by any disability.
From Yanko Design:
The built of the HERO Zupan is such that it makes it easy to navigate the chair on beaches and indulge in games like Frisbee and beach volleyball.
The HERO Daredevil traverses over land and sand with ease and hence is apt for beach and parks and is built for hard sports like beach rugby. This model has been inspired by the fictional character Daredevil.
HERO Xavier takes inspiration from the Marvel Comics’ character Charles Francis Xavier (Professor X). This chair is ideal for land sports and can be used in games like basketball, tennis etc.
