Ezra Ende Glide Wheel Chair
Glide Wheel Chair is Iron Design Award winner in 2020 - 2021 Differently Abled and Seniors' Assistance Design Award Category.
Glide Wheel Chair

The Glide chair is a manual wheelchair concept to help users live a more mobile and independent life with safety, comfort and modern aesthetics. The final design includes a hub-less wheel system with integrated, grooved push-rims to reduce the risk of fingers getting caught in spokes and enable ease of motion. The chair also uses a self-balancing gyroscopic sensor so the front caster wheels could be eliminated, to reduce the risk of tripping, while improving turning radius and mobility.
