Nairn firm's revolutionary wheelchair design
A Nairn-based designer, Andrew Slorance, himself paralysed since the age of 14 after an accident, has designed an innovative wheelchair which is called the Carbon Black. The process of getting it to market has not been straightforward and the project is to be featured in a BBC2 Scotland programme to be broadcast this Thursday, 19th July at 9pm (it'll be available for a week after broadcast on the BBC iPlayer). Worth watching I think.
