Welcome to UK Wheelchairs - the home of value and quality

First ever automated wheelchair created by Hong Kong inventor

Alan Lee Siu-lun has developed a breakthrough product in wheelchair assistance. The model has been in development in 2011, showing a big move forward from traditional stair-climbing wheelchairs.

The new model boasts a control panel that can be replaced with a tablet, and a wide pedrail that can be adjusted for use outdoors and even at the beach. The automated wheelchair can also be elevated, allowing users to be at the same level as others when at the dinner table.

Lee continues to develop the concept: in future the wheelchair should be able to track the health and fitness levels of users, and the wheelchair will also be able to notify doctors in emergency situations in order to provide necessary assistance.

The automated wheelchair will first be available in November, starting with Italy as it makes its way into the global market.

It will be interesting to see if this actualy takes on and becomes an accepted mode of wheelchair transport and if it actually improves the quality of life for wheelchaur users.
