NEW LIVE a family history
At the heart of our family
NEW LIVE is above all our story
NEW LIVE was created by Mr. Michel Ohruh who was confronted with the mobility problems of his daughter Mégane. Handicapped following an accident and then a failure to provide care in an IEM, Mégane lost the ability to walk and the facility to go towards others.
Mégane’s thirst for freedom and her needs were the driving force behind the project to design a wheelchair for Mr Orhuh. The wheelchair had to be compact, able to negotiate pavements and at the same time be playful and versatile – in short, Magix.
Lack of accessibility
When the environment creates disability
The story of Megane’s holiday and the birth of Magix
Our daughter Megane had a serious accident at the age of three that left her paralysed. Our family used to spend a week of the winter holidays in a pedestrian resort. As long as Megane was small, she was in a sledge, which was no problem. But as she grew up we had to face a dead end. No chair could move forward in the snow, and Mégane got stuck.
Mr. Ohruh made a promise to his daughter that he would create a magic wheelchair that would accommodate her mobility needs.
At the end of 2009, in parallel to his carpentry activity, Mr Ohruh created the company New Live
