Morph folding wheel by Vitamins, UK

"This is a design for the first ever foldable wheel , which has just started coming off the production line in the US. It started life intended for bikes in a city-centre context but has, in the end, taken off in relation to wheelchairs. The most heart-warming thing about this is the possible impact it may make on people's live if they need to use a wheelchair. Users apparently complain about big bulky chairs that sit in the corner of the room, staring at you and reminding that you need them. This one can be folded away. In fact, it is the first time a wheelchair can be folded small enough to go in an overhead locker on a plane, the boot of a small car, or a wardrobe at home." JB
