Ruk-bug, the pushchair back-pack
Russell Clifton has developed a new kind of child's pushchair, a pushchair that can also be worn as a back pack. “First, I put my ideas down on paper, then I began making models out of lollipop sticks, pipe cleaners and an old t-shirt." The Ruk-bug got its first boost when Russell secured two innovation grants totalling £10,000 by the Northwest Regional Development Agency. He also secured a backer who provided a £100,000 package which will help pay for final tweaks to the design and marketing. Come along to hear his exciting story.
