A Birmingham design company have teamed up with fellow Midlands firm RGK Wheelchairs to help them launch a mini website and interactive game ahead of this year’s Paralympic Games.

Twelve20, a design agency based in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, have been working closely with RGK Wheelchairs to support the launch of its new Elite wheelchair for sports use.

Burntwood-based RGK Wheelchairs, who design and manufacture custom wheelchairs, are the official sponsors of the 2012 British Men’s, Women’s and Junior Wheelchair Basketball teams.

The Elite chair, which is currently being tested by professional wheelchair basketball players, has been specially designed for use at the Paralympic Games in London 2012.

“Over the coming months the interest in RGK’s new wheelchair will grow significantly from Olympic Games followers all over the world, so it was imperative that we helped them to create a clear, strong brand,” said Twelve20’s Darren Langham.
