WHILL attachment to turn ordinary wheelchairs into electric mobility devices

Debuted at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, the WHILL wheelchair attachment allows users to turn ordinary wheelchairs into electronic vehicles. The product, which looks similar to a pair of oversized headphones, is attached to the outside of the wheelchair’s wheels and can propel the wheelchair to a max speed of 12mph. The lithium-ion battery charges in a mere two hours and allows users to travel about 19 miles on one charge.
