New Wheelchair Workshop
Published on: August 20, 2018
CIL-Kathmandu is very excited to announce our new Wheelchair Workshop in Balaju.
Staff recently visited the site to preview the progress of the workshop which has now been fitted with the necessary machinery and is going through the final stages of safety modifications.
CIL-Kathmandu is very proud of our history of locally manufacturing and repairing wheelchairs. In our previous workshop, we were able to construct and distribute over 200 wheelchairs to people in need of mobility assistance. We were also involved in the production of ‘Leopard’, Nepal’s very first smart electric wheelchair.
We are thrilled to be able to offer our wheelchair services again and to continue conducting research on wheelchair innovation and design.
A very big thank you to our wonderful partners at Infinity Lab and Nepal Government for the dedication shown towards creating a space in Kathmandu where persons with disabilities can receive the highest quality wheelchair services according to their needs.
