About the solution

The device is removable: it can be tilted backwards when transferring into or out of the wheelchair and adjusting according to the size of the person. It was built for an electric wheelchair, but it can be adapted to any type of wheelchair.

Despite his condition, Michel kept drawing, using his mouth, and then with the assistance of computer technology. He designed the plans to adapt a system for relieving the shoulder joint, which is heavily used by wheelchair users to maintain a good position.

The inventor died in early 2016, it was one of his sisters, Christine Moulin, shared this solution online posthumously.
