Stephan's Not A Wheelchair



Eleven-year-old Stephan loves being in nature, exploring trails and going to National Parks.  Since he has outgrown his jogger stroller and has become to heavy to carry, he has not been able to explore and enjoy what makes him most happy.

Stephan’s vocal cords are paralyzed midline (closed) as he has a complicated airway and inadequate opening for inhalation.  With movement, ie. Walking or any exercises, his vocal cords are pulled even closer together, effectively fully occluding his airway.  This is called paradoxical breathing.  His airway is only adequate for a person at rest.

This wheelchair, called Not A Wheelchair, can drive on grass, hills, rocky terrain and with a little extra, able-bodied help, even some sand!  It would allow him to get back outside and be as independent as an 11-year-old with breathing difficulties can be.  He would be able to keep up with others on adventures and tours.  Stephan says, “I want to see somewhere and be able to get there!”
