It’s been a long time coming and we are excited to finally unveil the winners of our Dynamic Form Lifestyle Device Challenge.

Check out our winners and read what the judges had to say about their entries:


This winning device is designed to offer and include numerous modular elements to allow the user a completely customizable experience. Gyroscope technology allows the user to navigate purely through natural and effortless leaning while continuing to feel balanced. The 3T presents a number of different versions such as two different pendulum modes, full chair and hardy sports track to suit any user preference. It’s clear to see the thought, research and effort that went into this design and why the judges chose it for first place!

JUDGES COMMENTS

“This is great! It puts the user in the focus, in the sense that the machine is reduced as much as possible. The person can be upright and at eye level. The vehicle is light and not dominant in the user perception. An excellent balance of forms that appear reliable and inspire confidence. It can be a sport device, or some kind of pod, more than simply a handicapped tool. This will give the user a kind of freedom that a conventional wheelchair will never offer.”

- Murat, Murat Günak Design

“Functional building blocks allow user adaptation. I can imagine that this device will be a lot of fun.”

- Marcel Jung, Ottobock

“Modular design, very flexible”

This omni-directional device features a more-slim indoor mode with basic accessibility solutions perfect for moving around home, offices, and other public areas. The outdoor mode, noticeably wider and closer to the ground, turns into a scooter for increased stability and includes higher top speeds for more uneven outdoor and city terrain.
