Designed to give wheelchair users more independence this IWA (Independent Wheelchair Assistant), built by Oscar Fernandez, connects to any wheelchair and pulls it along, eliminating the need to transfer into a mobility chair or be pushed.

Connecting the motorised wheels lifts the two front wheels of the wheelchair off the ground and essentially turns the chair into a car, and this can all be done via controls on the handlebars.

    This is so cool! Great design concept. Hopefully the price point will have mass appeal.
