After more than ten frustrating years in various badly designed wheelchairs, Mark Owen took it upon himself to create a new wheelchair design that was beautiful, lightweight, bespoke and modern.

Named Nomad, Owen’s innovative, minimalist design is constructed from fewer parts, which allows for a lighter chair with greater reliability and mobility. In addition, Nomad operates with a moral and environmentally friendly approach to the sourcing of its materials. Where possible, sustainable materials are used, the carbon footprint is reduced, and fair prices are paid to suppliers.
