The process will begin with the modification of two functional wheelchairs into an awesome piece of art. The company believes these customized devices will help their receivers. One of steampunk wheelchairs will go to Kyron, the 14 year old boy with Muscular Dystrophy who is the inspiration behind the project. His unique and awesome ride will help him gain confidence in his interactions by changing the focus of the conversation allowing him to express his individuality through his assisted living device.


The SteamAble Wheelchair Project by ModVic is currently raising money on Indiegogo, an international crowd funding site. The funding campaign is looking to reach the goal of $30,000 USD and will end on February 27, 2014.
