The Hexhog was designed by Sion Pierce, an engineer and farmer’s son. During his final year at University Sion became aware of a farming family who used quad bike ATVs to access their land, however as one family member was a wheelchair user they could not participate. This provided the inspiration for the Hexhog. Sion wanted to create a vehicle that would challenge terrain accessibility of conventional wheelchairs, and provide equal opportunities for wheelchair users to safely access areas of countryside previously considered inaccessible.
With the assistance of a loan from an engineering company Sion developed the concept in Denbigh North Wales. After years of test and development on some of the roughest land the idea has evolved to the product it is today.
Sion subsequently teamed with Da-Vinci Wheelchairs Ltd to bring the Hexhog to the wider audience, enabling users to purchase a great product with confidence from an experienced mobility equipment manufacturer.
The Hexhog was launched Spring 2014.
