Foldable Wheelchair Wheel (Folded), Morph Wheel, 2007
Portability is a key factor to being mobile and moving about as unencumbered as possible. Among the challenges of storing and transporting wheelchairs is wheel size. These folding wheels, originally developed for the high-end bicycle industry, are a game-changer for wheelchair users, collapsing to nearly half the space, thus enabling the wheels and wheelchair to fit into smaller storage compartments.
