Mobility Beyond Pavement
What came out of our engagement was a conversation around how the Mobility Lab was planning on funding the cost of the LFC for people with disabilities in developing countries. We realized that there was an opportunity for this technology to have a first world application for active wheelchair users - to enable them to travel off pavement with ease, to go for a hike, ride along the beach in the hard sand, etc. At that point we realized that our, Continuum's, biggest value would be in helping them to visualize the experience and the appropriate aesthetics of the first world version of the LFC, later called the LFC Sport. Our aspiration is to empower people with disabilities and to create a vehicle that's more closely associated with a mountain bike, less with a conventional wheelchair.
