Meet the Sisters Who Started a Business Selling Artist-Designed Wheelchair Wheel Covers
"If you can't stand up, stand out!" That's the motto behind a Dublin-based company called Izzy Wheels, which makes stylish, waterproof wheel covers for wheelchairs. The designs, which can easily be switched up to suit the occasion or mood, are created by internationally renowned artists and designers in dozens of different styles.
Izzy Wheels was created by Ailbhe Keane and her sister Izzy, who enjoyed decorating the wheels of her wheelchair while growing up with spina bifida. "When she'd have her wheels done up, it just gave her a huge confidence boost," Ailbhe told the BBC 3. The network recently caught up with the pair and another Izzy Wheels "spokes model" for their Amazing Humans series. You can watch the video below—then check out the whole collection of colorful designs on IzzyWheels.com.
