The chair is lightweight, fast to produce and tailored to fit a person's body perfectly

Printed in semi-transparent resin and shock-absorbent thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) plastic, LayerLAB's GO wheelchair is a great example of the power of combining functional design and emerging technologies. Sleek and fashionable, yet durable, highly customizable and fast to produce, GO has the potential to reimagine the way companies think about products targeted for disabled communities.

The idea was born from a collaboration between Materialize, a leading 3D-printing company, and Layer’s new research devision LayerLAB, tasked with investigating how emerging technologies and materials can improve the quality of life. GO is a result of two years of research and dozens of conversations with medical professionals and wheelchair users.
