Sports Wheelchair- Our Journey!
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) had recognised that a barrier to sports participation globally was the absence of good quality, but low-cost sports wheelchairs for its most popular sports. Elite wheelchairs were available, but access limited and at several thousand dollars financially out of reach for individuals, schools, clubs, governing bodies, rehabilitation units and national federations, especially in low- and middle-income countries.
The IPC wanted to change that and connected with Motivation (https://www.motivation.org.uk/Pages/Category/sports-wheelchairs)recognising that we had over a decades experience in creating award winning, low cost, everyday wheelchairs and services for the humanitarian sector.
Motivation collaborated with the world governing bodies for Tennis and Basketball and later the IPC in their capacity as the Para athletics governing body and created an entry level range of sports wheelchairs. Motivation has produced over 12,000 sports wheelchairs, which can be found in more than 100 countries, including India. The sports wheelchair are used for a wide variety of sports such as Badminton, Cricket, Kabaddi, Dance, Rugby League, Softball, in addition to Basketball, Tennis, Track and Marathon Racing.
We hooked up with the world governing bodies for Tennis and Basketball and later the IPC in their capacity as the Para athletics governing body and created an entry level range of sports wheelchairs.
