The Segway Wheelchair / Product Design

The Segway Wheelchair

Most people, from elderly to youngsters, refuse to use wheelchairs and crotches and would rather walk on their broken leg, because they don’t want to look like they’re seriously injured, or they have physical disabilities and need to rely on walking aids.
The height of the Segway Wheelchair is similar to standing, so that other people won’t feel the height difference easily. Most people would have pity for wheelchair users due to the obvious height difference.
