The WHILL Type-A Motorized Wheelchair is different from conventional wheelchair designs, mainly because the user sits in an active rather than an inactive position. The wheelchair can be leaned into, like a Segway or a bike, with a controller that can be manipulated with a single hand. The wheelchair also has a small turning radius and can easily be turned on a dime. Additionally, it can easily handle riding on difficult terrain like grass, gravel, snow and dirt. The chair has three different modes: one that requires its user to sit actively and leaning in and out, another to provide optimal position for sitting at a table and a third “off-mode” for total relaxation. The one-hand-operated controls are mounted in one of the two arms that sit to either side of the user. Those arms can either be left fully forward for complete control, telescoped down to allow for access to desks or tables, or pulled back and out of the way for getting in and out of the chair.
