UNAwheel Mini claims to be the world’s lightest wheelchair power add-on. The product weighs just over 5kg and can travel up to 10mph. It is designed to be user-friendly and “classy”, according to its Spanish manufacturer. The product also aims to be affordable and the UNAwheel Mini brands itself as ‘the Batmobile of wheelchair power assists’. The supplier said: “It’s black, it’s powerful and it has a hero in the driver’s seat.” The power add-on can be attached and detached from a wheelchair in 10 seconds in two simple moves and its minimalistic appearance is designed to make it as discrete as possible.
