Bridgestone also continues to apply its tire and rubber expertise in collaboration with experts, engineers and athletes to help improve the performance of adaptive sports equipment. In the United States, the Bridgestone Americas Technology Center in Akron, Ohio, has worked with Team Bridgestone adaptive ambassadors and athletes as Chuck Aoki (wheelchair rugby), Aaron Pike (paralympic athletics) e Scout Bassett (paralympic athletics). Together, the group explored the rubber’s applications for glove tires, wheelchair handrails, prosthetic running blades, nail plates and more.

The company also developed wheelchair tennis tires for Manami Tanaka, Team Bridgestone ambassador and Bridgestone employee.

Bridgestone’s support for the Olympic and Paralympic Games is aligned with the Bridgestone E8 Commitment, which consists of eight Bridgestone-like values ​​starting with the letter “E” (Energy, Ecology, Efficiency, Extension, Economy, Emotion, Ease, Empowerment).
