Ergonomics in action
LayerLAB, the studio’s future research division, focuses on uncovering behavioral insights to reshape everyday interactions and create forward-thinking new products.
During development of the GO wheelchair, the studio discovered that a primary concern of wheelchair users was the strain involved in self-propelling. LayerLAB developed the GO glove system to increase the level of grip between a rider’s hands and the wheelchair’s push rims. The system enables the user to lock into the super tactile push rims of the GO wheelchair and delivers a greater power-to-push ratio.
This unique system – the first of its kind – decreases the risk of injury and painful conditions common to wheelchair users.
