Pakistan Accessible Design Contest


Our HWI team was honored to have the unique and outstanding opportunity to participate on this Pakistan Contests international judging board for NOWPDP,

The contest received sixty design entries. The NOWPDP team then picked the top ten designs for the international judging board to evaluate. The presentation of each entry was of professional quality and a gift of education and awareness for those with lower limb disabilities and to the hand-cycle world.

This opportunity helped us crystalize our purpose, while combining over 50 years of trike experience in evaluating the ten accessible designs. Our evaluation team consisted of eight members including our design engineer, physical therapist, bicycle mechanic, along with a couple students and Messiah College’s Burkina Faso trike project coordinator.
Congratulations to Taufeeq Elahi Diju Winner reported in Dawn, who had the winning desing, Orbis 3.

On May 9, 2015 Kevin Nikolich, our His Wheels International design engineer met with Ayuba Gufwan in Grand Rapids Michigan. Ayuba is from Nigeria and part of Beautiful Gates/Wheelchairs for Nigeria.
