Wheel Pad is an ecofriendly 200 square foot accessible bedroom and bathroom attachable to an existing home. It provides a respectful and supportive space for people with mobility issues, making it easy for friends or family to provide support while figuring out long term solutions. Wheel Pad was designed by Joseph Cincotta, Principal Architect of LineSync Architecture and Wheel Pad L3C.
The Wheel Pad prototype was constructed at Norwich University by Norwich University Engineering faculty and students from the School of Engineering and the School of Architecture. The prototype was completed 31 August 2016 and then delivered to LineSync Architects. Wheel Pad is schedule to tour rehab centers and hospitals where interested people can view the Wheel Pad. The final stop will be at the Tiny House Festival in Brattleboro.
