Welcome to UK Wheelchairs - the home of value and quality

At last a wheelchair-friendly catwalk

Wheelchair user Fashion student Laura Richter, 22, has just graduated with a first class honours from Huddersfield University.  Not only is this a great achievement, but Laura has attained such high results whilst battling with muscular dystrophy.  Because of how the condition has affected her life, Laura chose to combine disability with fashion, creating designs specifically targeted towards wheelchair users.

The work was demanding for Laura; she explained that she had to be very strict with herself, "eating the right things and sleeping the right amount". Her university accommodated her needs further by creating a special low-level work table in the fashion department. Despite the challenges of her condition, Laura has shown that great perseverance and ambition can overcome disability.

We wish her luck in all that she does.
