The deadline for the Mobility Unlimited Challenge is now just over a month away, on the 15th August, 2018. Last week, we held an innovator webinar to share more information about the Challenge, discuss what and who we're looking for, and give innovators tips for their applications.
Last week, we hosted a Facebook Live, where we were joined by Martyn Sibley, disability advocate, journalist and the star of our documentary series. We discussed the Challenge, running through why we’re running it, as well as who and what we’re looking for.
This is a question we are often asked, which is why we wanted to provide a thorough answer. In short, we put a lot of careful thought and robust research into developing a challenge prize that would have the highest possible impact in transforming people’s lives for the better.
With our August 15th entry deadline just around the corner, we’re excited to announce two upcoming online events that will support your entrance to the Challenge!

Data from our recent international study of wheelchair users highlights the need for investment and innovation in the development of assistive technologies for people with limited mobility.
New international study finds that nine out of ten (89%) wheelchair users across the UK, USA, Japan, Brazil and India experience pain as a result of their mobility device.
In the final episode of our #MyMobilityUnlimited documentary, Martyn meets the innovators who are changing the face of mobility. From mapping cities, to modular solutions - we explore the future of mobility innovation.
