People who have mobility issues and require a wheelchair could benefit greatly from WheelAir, a backrest cushion designed by Corien Staels to ensure their comfort and safety.

The WheelAir is the first of its kind on the market, and is able to cool all manual wheelchairs. It is able to support the user's back while gently blowing cool air onto their back with its incorporated fan technology. The fan aims to keep the user comfortable, safe when it is excessively hot outside, and prevents them from sweating too much.

The WheelAir has four different cooling levels, a 20 hour battery life, is machine washable and weighs less than 1 kg – making it easily portable and simple to use.
