Innovative Lives: Quickie Wheelchair inventor Marilyn Hamilton

Marilyn Hamilton, co-inventor of the Quickie Wheelchair, will speak with National Museum of American History (NMAH) curator Katherine Ott about her life as an athlete and inventor.

Following a hang-gliding accident in 1978, she worked with two friends to adapt hang-glider materials to invent a lightweight, easy-to-maneuver wheelchair, which she then used to play championship wheelchair tennis. Hamilton co-founded Motion Designs to manufacture the wheelchairs, sold today under the brand name Quickie.
