UNI-Wheel / assistive mobility device

UNI-Wheel
UNI-Wheel

UNI-wheel is a single wheeled, electric assistive mobility device, which aims to help people transport heavy wheeled items, such as luggage, stroller or trolley, more efficiently and conveniently. Although the items have wheels, it’s still hard to move them uphill or for a long distance, especially for elders. UNI-wheel, a powered wheel, can be mounted directly onto the existing wheeled items, and is controlled by the button in your hand. It requires minimal effort to operate, making it quick and easy to use for everyone. Additionally, it is lightweight and portable, which also can be hooked on the handle of the wheeled item.
