Whirlwind Wheelchair International
Whirlwind Wheelchair International Organization Type: 
Whirlwind Wheelchair International (WWI), a program of the Urban Institute at San Francisco State University (SFSU), works to make wheelchairs available to every person in the developing world who needs one. It does this by designing wheelchairs that could be built in developing countries from locally available materials, and by providing on-site training in wheelchair assembly, production, and fitting, to support small shop production in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. All of WWI’s designs are placed in the public domain in order not to add to the cost of village wheelchair shops using these designs. WWI offers consulting services to private wheelchair manufacturers and individual designers and inventors. Each semester, WWI gives a hands-on wheelchair design and construction class at San Francisco State University to students and interested members of the community.
