Hello there, :-) I am a product designer with an interest on inclusive design. I am designing at present a drinking water fountain for people of all ages. I am trying make it as easy to use as possible and of course, wheelchair friendly. I have been trying to research children wheelchair measurements  unsuccesfully and was wondering anyone in the community woukd be kind to provide me with these measurements and/or any user advice for me to bear in mind while designing it. Thank you very much! Veronica

    Hi @veronica123 welcome to the community ! That is a great idea and I'm sure members of our community will be happy to share their thoughts with you. Would this be height adjustable as some powered wheelchair users have their chairs quite high :)

    Thank you Brian for your message ,  :)
    The drinking fountain will have two or three basins with different heights, I am not able to make it adjustable I am afraid.  I am trying to find out as  much opinions and measurements as I can to calculate the different heights based on that. As I mentioned before, I appreciate very much any shared thoughts !
