ACTIV BASKET is a shopping basket designed for the everyday use made for people moving on an active wheelchair. For the disabled people making shopping is an unnecesarily challenged activity which needs an ergonomic solution. By attaching "Activ Basket" to the front chassis of a wheelchair, the user has both hands and lap free, which gives great comfort in comparison with holding the traditional shopping basket or conducting the shopping case. As the name suggests, Activ Basket was designed bearing in mind people leading intense and active lifestyle. It is made to give the user maximum independent movement and not trouble the motion around the shop. It is also helpful in other situations like the unnecesarily handered activity of transferring the shopping to the car. What is important, Activ Basket was made in cooperation with disabled people moving on a wheelchair, so it appeals to the real everyday problem.
The basket has 4 stems keeping it stabile when standing separately and 3 hitching points attaching the basket to the wheelchair. It has a removable inside made from modern PX material with fortifying stitchings, which is waterproof and easy to wash. It is attached to the aluminium frame with various velcros. The Basket has a fill volume of minimum 22 litres. It is finished with neoprene net with a puller which enables to augment its' load capacity and ensure the shopping won't fall out from the basket.
