Andrew Slorance used his own spinal injury as inspiration to design the Carbon Black Wheelchair, arguably the most stylish mobility device on the market.

The chair was constructed using F1 carbon spec fiber, a material that is both lightweight and robust, in order to fulfill all of Slorance's design objectives. F1 engineers can fashion the design to bespoke measurements for greater usability.

The sleek, minimal design, which incorporates the seat as part of the core structure, does so much more than just allow the users to ride in style. It actually works to change people's perception of wheelchairs and the people who use them. The Carbon Black Wheelchair is designed to prove that medical mobility does not need to be functional to the exclusion of style.
