According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the 15% of the global population has some disability degree, of them, 90 millions are wheelchair users and only in the United States, there are 3,8 millions in than condition.
Motora One, was created by Claudio Arriaza, who, after suffering an accident that left him in a wheelchair and the disappointment for the lack of alternatives for having more autonomy, decided to found Motora with his partner and ex college partner Gibran Pichara. Both founders have been working since 2016 to develop products that improve the wellbeing of people with disabilities.
It was born after an intense development that started from the own experience of one of its founder, including constant validations and tests with users with all kind of disability and wheelchairs.
The founders can proudly say that they have strived in that every detail of the backpack improves the wellbeing and performance of anyone that uses it, through a design that conjugates a series of elements to make this bag an ideal partner in the everyday.
Additionally, Motora has an "S" version for people without disabilities, so they can also enjoy the benefits and comfort that this backpack can provide.
The features of the first product developed by the team are:
Wide handles in different parts for a more comfortable manipulation and in accord with the different possibilities of each user.
Closures and strings that are easy to use by people with low hand function, that are made by reflective material to provide more more visibility and security at night.
Magnetic buckles for a fast and easy way to open the backpack.
Straps with a retraible system to adjust them to desired height of the backrest of the wheelchair.
Gran cantidad de bolsillos y espacios accesibles acondicionados para todo tipo de objetos y elementos como computadores, ayudas técnicas y artículos de uso diario..
Many pockets and accessible spaces conditioned for every type of objects and elements like computers, technical help and everyday goods.
Besides of a retraible pull out system to ease the take out of your notebook.
The creators ensure that Motora One will bring real solutions for an autonomy use and functionality without sacrificing design or aesthetics, contributing with their grain of sand to advance in a major adaptation, in better opportunities and possibilities for people with disabilities.
With this initiative, the founders seeks to help to "empower, to leave behind the fears and to go for your objectives and goals, whatever are the circumstances"
