The goal of our project at Incline Advantage is to engineer a product that can give users a wheelchair incline advantage. We found after interviewing wheelchair users that there were notations of difficulty rolling up inclines with the additional amount of effort needed to get to their destination. Our product at Incline Advantage will reduce the strain that users often face with obstacles of inclines with an electrical assist that will propel them forward. The user will be able to retain the benefits of having the practicality of a regular wheelchair without the weight and large costs associated with competitors on the market.
