The designed device speaks to the aging population, allowing them to be more mobile and independent for longer without the concern of an accident or emergency.
NARRATIVE AWARD: Audric- Driving experience for the Paralyzed by rajsredefining
A solution that can be used by all people but is made specifically with those who are paralyzed in mind. Its' focus on inclusive design and independence made this a clear choice.
Many emerging technologies are utilized within this device but the most impressive piece of this entry is the infrastructure of last-mile mobility options that are available as add-ons to Flex.
The narrative provided gives an interesting tale of how a Flex would be used in everyday life.
