Since the beginning WHILL has actively sought feedback from wheelchair users and applied it to their designs. The founders were inspired by their friend, a wheelchair user, who had given up on going even just a few blocks to the grocery store. His chair lacked the functionality needed to navigate the imperfect pathways and he was also facing the emotional struggle caused by the stigma he felt as a wheelchair user.
"We are proud to have received FDA clearance," said Sugie. "In order to realize our vision of mobility solutions, we need be able to address the millions of mobility device users who are suffering from lack of innovation in the industry. FDA's review is a uniquely rigorous process we undertook because we remain deeply committed to ensuring that our products are stringently tested, and that patients and their physicians have access to the world's most advanced wheelchair."
