Tech Advancements Are Stoking a Race to Deliver the Next Generation of Wheelchairs
Wheelchair design has remained stagnant for decades. That's a problem, considering people with disabilities still can't always access everyday infrastructure.

But recent technological advances are forging a new generation of wheelchairs that promises much greater accessibility, even for people with severe physical limitations.
