Edouard Detrez


Edward is 27 and the creator of the "Le fauteuil roulant français” wheelchair brand. This young businessman from the Gers region in southern France aims to revive Made in France wheelchair manufacturing for active people and sportsmen by offering them lighter, more manoeuvrable and customisable models in a wide range of colours and materials, including removable cushions. In January 2018, he travelled 710 km across France in a wheelchair right up to the Elysée Palace to raise Emmanuel Macron’s awareness of disability in business.
