Nomad Wheelchairs, has just become the first UK company to win the ‘Excellence in a First Time Design Project’ Award at the European design awards, the DME Awards, in Eindhoven, Holland

Mark Owen, a wheelchair user himself, started nomad with his brother Jon, just 6 months ago, in response to over a decade of feeling frustrated by the choice of wheelchairs available to the market.

The coveted DME Awards recognise and reward companies for excellent management of the complete design process, from product design to branding, marketing and literature. It covers how a company pulls all these elements together in order to lead through design and includes planning, communication, delivery and results.

Nomad are the first mobility company to win any DME Award and is the first UK company to win this category. Other companies to enter the awards this year came from Lithunia, Holland, Germany, and across Europe, and represented many various industries, from architecture to soft drinks.
