Handy Bag- Carrying solutions for wheelchair users

$22,818

261

The problem:

Traditional backpacks for wheelchair users are not accessible for them because they are located in the back of the wheelchair. And so, they are simply not designed well enough to fit the user's needs and they just don't look good. 

The solutions: 

       ✔ The Dynamic Bag - For manual wheelchair users.  
       ✔ The Side Bag - For electric wheelchair users.
       ✔ You Can Make a Child Smile - Your pledges will help children in need.

The Dynamic Bag 

Made for manual wheelchair users.The first dynamic backpack that the users can pull from the back side to the front and give them full access to their personal belongings with virtually no effort.

The Side Bag 

Made for electric wheelchair users. The side bag is designed to be handled with just one hand, which makes it easier to use thanks to a unique inner shell system.

Our story

My name is Yair, I am an industrial designer and the founder of Handy Bag which is a brand that designs and manufactures bags for wheelchair users. The inspiration for the project came from my lovely parents, my dad is a war veteran and my mom was diagnosed with polio, both of them are using wheelchairs.

We have made about 50 different prototypes and tried them with 40 different users in the last two years in order to design the best solution in the world.

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing is definitely not an easy task, the whole concept of it is to depend on someone else, whether it's a factory or a shipping company.
However, we are connected to a few factories, all of which are well known for their quality and delivery standards.
We did not manufacture anything on a large scale yet but we are in touch with a few companies that are working with these factories on a daily basis and so, those factories have proven that they are reliable.
No matter what happens in the future, we will do our best to deliver the best products we can and make sure to update all of our backers every step of the way.
