For some individuals, a wheelchair is their primary mode of transportation, and as well as enabling them to get from point A to point B, it introduces an unparalleled element of freedom into their lives. But current electronic wheelchairs do bring with them a series of downfalls, their bulky, cumbersome size and the undesirable aesthetic being two of the main ones. Kwanjun Ryu set out to create a solution to these issues, and the solution came in the form of the Model F.
The Model F is like no other. It carries an aesthetic that puts all other electric wheelchairs to shame, from its organic curves that flow elegantly, to the futuristic Omni wheels that give it a strong presence. Its sleek, attention-stealing aesthetics are also immensely practical, elevating its day-to-day usability greatly; in just a few simple steps the robust wheelchair smoothly transforms into a transportable, aircraft-friendly, compact package that is a far more practical alternative to the conventional wheelchair.
