Caption: Wheelchair design. Three-wheel wheelchair in rural Afghanistan. This chair was designed by the Motivation Charitable Trust, which began a project in 1996, in partnership with Sandy Gall's Afghan Appeal, to design a wheelchair for land mine victims. The chair is made from locally sourced materials and is built in a workshop in Afghanistan. Three wheels allow the user to cross rough ground more easily than in a conventional four-wheel chair. A hand tricycle attachment (not seen) can be fitted to assist users in travelling long distances.
