Everest Jennings wheelchairs
Everest Jennings is one of the top brands of wheelchairs in the world, and the history of the modern wheelchair is closely tied to the history of this well respected brand. The first wheelchairs were made during the late 18th century, and for the next 100 years, models were largely the same. Most were high-packed chairs made of leather and wood or wicker and were mounted on very simple wheels. The chairs were bulky, often difficult to steer and did not offer ample support for the body. All of that changed after Herbert Everest broke his back in a mining accident. A mechanical engineer, Everest felt that that there was great room for improvement on the wheelchairs designs that were available to help him remain mobile, so he enlisted the help of his friend and fellow engineer Harry Jennings. Together, they created a revolutionary new type of wheelchair. Their chair was the first to be made of metal and was much lighter in weight than previous models. It even folded for easy transportation and storage. In 1933, the pair began to market their new wheelchairs to the public and Everest Jennings was born.
