Wheeliy / Wheelchair


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Wheeliy, a foldable wheelchair for both active wheelchair users and also non-wheelchair users. Active wheelchair users encounter many situations where they have to ask for assistance when traveling. Therefore, the yellow accent colors are visual indications for people not familiar with a wheelchair to smoothly assist in these moments. Assisters intuitively understand that they should hold the yellow grips to stably carry the wheelchair. The signature S-shaped frame consists of the minimum number of joints and screws, giving its sleek and uplifting feel. The three spoke wheel prevents fingers from getting jammed, and it is also easy to clean.
