A Wheelchair That Empowers Its Users

WHILL Model Ci

Over 3 million Americans rely on wheelchairs to get around. And yet, there has been little innovation in that field—most wheelchairs are bulky vessels that struggle to traverse many terrains. Enter the Model Ci ($3,999), a new electric model. Thanks to its specially engineered front “omni-wheels,” it can ride up to 10 miles indoors or outdoors, climb obstacles up to two inches in height and easily navigate cramped quarters; it can also be disassembled in minutes, enabling easy transport. Parent company Whill says the Model Ci, which also comes in gold and millennial pink (among other colors), has sold almost 10,000 units since its January debut. —Samantha Cooney
