2016-03-22 – SoftWheel achieves goal of designing a superior wheelchair delivering greater accessibility and far greater comfort.
SoftWheel CEO Daniel Barel gave a presentation today before more than 18,000 people at the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington, D.C. His address, which included product demonstrations, focused on SoftWheel’s life-changing innovations and the company’s plans for the future.
“We set out to give wheelchair users a more comfortable and accessible ride, and we ended up reinventing the wheel, explained Barel.”
Selected as one of just three companies from across the “startup nation” to be featured on-stage in a plenary session at the conference, Barel described how he and his team achieved their breakthrough by first achieving the goal of designing a superior wheelchair delivering greater accessibility and far greater comfort. Barel and his team accomplished what no other innovators could do despite nearly 200 years of trying: SoftWheel reinvented the wheel, putting suspension inside the wheel itself.
Earlier in the conference, Barel delivered another address that gave hundreds of delegates the opportunity to see SoftWheel’s products up-close and to learn more about the history of the company.
