WHILL Model C2

The updated WHILL Model C2 challenges the conventions of today's powered wheelchairs, bringing a fresh perspective with an innovative design and state of the art technology. Unique features include the revolutionary omni wheel system for unrivalled manoeuvrability, ultra-light Lithium Ion batteries for easy transportability, plus of course the unprecedented stylish design.

Product Description

Japanese designed, the WHILL range was conceived when a friend of the company's founder felt uncomfortable with the negative attention he received when using his wheelchair outside. The team behind WHILL resolved to create a device that would empower this friend, enabling him to be himself and do what he wanted to with confidence and enthusiasm. Designed entirely anew from the ground up, the WHILL range didn't come burdened with any of the preconceptions of existing wheelchairs, resulting in its unique and multi-award winning design. The Model C2 is the latest addition to the WHILL range, and is the most accessible and transportable model yet.

Whether you're driving around town or manoeuvring indoors in tight spaces, the WHILL is equally capable, making every ride a hassle free and safe experience. The short wheelbase and narrow frame combine with the unique omni wheel system to let the WHILL C turn within an extremely tight radius - giving you unrivalled control and agility. The omni wheels have 24 independent rollers allowing them to move seamlessly in any direction, while also making unwieldy swivelling casters a thing of the past. Outside, the WHILL can comfortably overcome obstacles up to 2 inches, and has superb stability and durability - plus a top speed of 4 mph and range of up to 10 miles after a 5 hour charge.

Your WHILL Model C2 can be dismantled into 3 easy to lift components that will fit comfortably into the boot of a car, and the lightweight Lithium batteries are a breeze to lift. This gives you the freedom to take your WHILL C2 anywhere.

The stunning design of the WHILL offers a unique styling not found anywhere else on the market, and its futuristic and "non-clinical" appearance is a big part of its appeal. This extends to the control system, redesigned on the Model C2 to be both intuitive and responsive, and which is quite unlike the traditional "joystick bolted to the end of an armrest" approach seen elsewhere.

Our Verdict

The WHILL Model C2 is in a category all by itself, and will appeal to those after a stylish and versatile ride that doesn't have the looks of a traditional wheelchair. A choice of three seat widths - 16, 18 and 20 inches are available to allow a good fit to your size, although it must be noted that the seating cannot cater to those with complex requirements. Given how unique it is, we would highly recommend trying the WHILL out to see the difference it can make to your life.
