Overview

Whirlwind Wheelchair International is a non profit social enterprise dedicated to improving the lives of people with disabilities in the developing world while promoting sustainable local economic development in the process. We work to make it possible for every person in the world who needs a high quality wheelchair to obtain one leading to maximum personal independence and integration into society. By giving wheelchair riders a central role in all aspects of our designs and projects Whirlwind ensures that our chairs are individually appropriate for each user and his or her respective environment. For thirty years in over 60 countries we have focused on producing durable low cost and highly functional wheelchairs. These chairs give riders the reliable and functional mobility they need to reach their full potential. Our active adult wheelchair design the RoughRider is used by 60000 riders traveling over every terrain that only the best of wheelchairs can cross from muddy village paths to rough pot holed urban streets.
