GW 003: The Freedom Chair–Changing Mobility for Wheelchair Users

Show Summary:

Global Warriors Podcast host, Keisha Reynolds, interviewed Tish Scolnik, founder of Grit–the company that brought the Freedom Chair to market. The Freedom Chair was conceptualized in a classroom at MIT and is beginning to revolutionize the way that wheelchair users have accessibility to off-road terrains.

There are two versions of the Freedom Chair–the first developed for use overseas and the most recent version developed for users within the United States.
