Transport Designer of the Year visits Long Road

Posted on

Duncan Fitzsimons, who won the Transport Design of the Year award for his Morph Folding Wheel for wheelchairs, gave an inspirational talk to Design Technology students about the design process, including the benefits of modern 3D printing. The Morph Folding Wheel makes it easier to fold up wheelchairs and fit them into overhead lockers in aircraft, in the boot of small car and to store them at work, school or home.

Lynn Reynolds, Design Technology teacher says: “It was really good to see such an inspiring person captivating the students, talking about his, and Vitamins experience, when experimenting and discovering superb solutions to a whole range of design problems.”
