Listen to the wheelAIR podcast on these channels:
This episode we had the amazing Corien Staels of Staels Design into our studio to talk about the launch of her new product wheelAir. Corien in 2017 was awarded at the Scottish EDGE for her innovative new wheelchair cushion that keeps people in wheelchairs cool in warm conditions. We had the chance to chat for a good 2 hours (a record for our podcast) where we discussed everything from starting her company to her recent Edge success. We also managed to detour the conversation onto Loch Lomond Kangaroos, which is always a good sign. Wheelair was first designed by Corien Staels in 2015. It became the first product of their Scottish company, Staels Design LTD, in 2016. Since then they have been growing their team, continuing product development and have signed their first brand ambassador, Double Paralympian and World Champion Michael Kerr. Their mission is to help improve wheelchair user’s lives by designing stylish products of the highest quality.
