The WHILL Type-A Motorized Wheelchair is different from conventional wheelchair designs, mainly because it has people sit in an active rather than an inactive position. The wheelchair can be leaned into, like a Segway or a bike, plus a controller that can be manipulated with a single hand.
The wheelchair also has a small turning radius and can be turned on a dime without hassle. Additionally, it can handle riding on difficult terrain like grass, gravel, snow and dirt with ease.
The chair has three different modes: one that requires its user to sit actively and leaning in and out, another to provide optimal position for sitting at a table and a third “off-mode” for total relaxation.
