Disrupt Disability - A New Normal

Featuring Disrupt Disability, A New Normal is the upcoming exhibition at Machines Room during LDF, which asks how could products be made in a world beyond mass-production? All participants are pioneering new ways of making today, establishing a ‘new normal’ where manufacturing is redistributed and mass means ‘by the masses’ not en-masse.                    

One of these contributors is Disrupt Disability, who are using parametric design, digital fabrication and distributed manufacture to make customised wheelchairs accessible, affordable and attractive. They have created the first ever modular wheelchair system so wheelwearers can interchange parts and optimise their wheelchair for their body, lifestyle and their environment. They are creating a platform so customers can fit and customise parametric module designs. They are establishing a network of designers and makers, to sell modules on their platform. Born out of a series of hackathons for wheelchair users, designers and makers, Disrupt Disability are making wheelchairs people want to wear.
