It was Ingeborg’s idea and inspiration that lead to the creation of Quokka. Ingeborg Meurkens (the Netherlands, 1956), mother of two daughters, lives in Belgium. She was diagnosed with MS 30 years ago. Since 2010 Ingeborg is dependant on a wheelchair. In that period she kept her bag in her lap (uncomfortable!) or kept it at the back of her wheelchair (unsafe!). Being the bag afficionado she is, she decided to invent the first practical bag for wheelchair users.
In order to make the idea work Rixen and Kaul from Germany especially developed an adapter for us that makes it possible to attach our bags to your wheelchair. Rixen and Kaul’s Patented KLICKfix® system has been carefully re-developed in such a way that it does not make your wheelchair any wider after attaching one of our bags. It also allows the bag to be locked onto the wheelchair with one simple movement.
