The origins of Remarkable go back to a global competition that sparked the development of a solar powered wheelchair and an Australian first hackathon event called “Enabled by Design-athon” organised by Cerebral Palsy Alliance in 2014 in partnership with the University of Technology Sydney and FutureGov.

Telstra Foundation were in attendance at the design-athon and out of this came a partnership that started out as Life Labs and became known as Remarkable which launched in April 2016.

Remarkable is a division of Cerebral Palsy Alliance and is funded by Principal Partner icare Foundation and with support from Telstra Foundation, Macquarie Foundation and Microsoft.


To harness the power of technological innovation for driving inclusion of people with disability.


Cerebral Palsy Alliance is an organisation that provides family-centred therapies, life skills programs, equipment and support for people living with cerebral palsy and their families.
