We are excited to be able to provide our central Pennsylvania customers with a power wheelchair that is unlike any other power wheelchair on the market: the Model A by WHILL. WHILL is an award-winning company that aims to integrate mobility aids seamlessly into everyday life, and their new product has won several design awards, including the Good Design Award Grand Prize in 2015. This is a device that is designed to get people where they want to go, without compromise. Check out this introduction video by WHILL:
Conquer Any Terrain
Never again let your wheelchair limit where you can go; the Model A incorporates several features that allow users to easily navigate grass, gravel, snow and curbs. No other device uses both four-wheel drive and all-directional wheels, allowing this power wheelchair to cover more types of terrain than others. The front wheels are unusually large and provide good traction; extra torque lets users really take advantage of all these features!
The front wheels work with the back wheels in four-wheel drive to provide good traction, but they are also specially designed to incorporate 24 small rollers that combine to form the wheel. This “All-Directional Wheel” technology is groundbreaking, and provides effortless and quick maneuverability both in small, indoor spaces and in the varied terrain of the great outdoors.
Download the integrated iPhone app for even more options. You can adjust the settings for driving and control, adjust the seat, or even use the app to control the device remotely. Imagine the convenience of using your phone to make your wheelchair drive right to you, or put itself away! And if you aren’t using the chair, the app allows you to activate a locking mechanism that keeps it safe.
With several design options and many available accessories, this is a chair that users can customize to fit their lifestyle. Choose from white or black color options and between an intuitive mouse-style controller or a traditional, ergonomic grip controller. Available accessories include an iPhone mount to keep your WHILL app handy, a USB power adaptor that allows you to charge electronics from your chair, head lights to keep your path clear in the dark, a drink holder, storage options, a lap belt for rough terrain and high speeds, and a portable speaker. The available portable ramp allows the device to be driven into a vehicle without lifting it.
Stylish, Convenient and Comfortable
One look tells you this isn’t your everyday wheelchair. WHILL takes design seriously, and this power wheelchair is both stylish and functional in every way. When you need to transport your wheelchair in a car, the Model A drives easily up a ramp and into the back of many vehicles. The chair itself can be adjusted in many ways for optimum comfort, including the seat height, angle and depth, the back angle, the arm angle, and the foot support angle, height and extension. You can also adjust the available speed and rate of acceleration through the WHILL iPhone app.
