This is the wheelchair designed for a specified use in the airport and airplane. The conventional wheelchair has inconvenienced users due to security clearance of metal detection at check-in gate and the switch of wheelchair type before boarding. We have worked hard first to improve the clearance of metal detection gate by replacing all the parts of wheelchair to nonmetal. Then we have added the function of removing the main wheels so users can enter the aircraft without changing the wheelchair type. This is the creation of new wheelchair that offers users a comfortable lounge and flight.
