Travelling with a wheelchair can be difficult. The idea is to develop a foldable wheelchair wheel. Folding the wheel will reduce the amount of storage space required from 0.7 cubic feet to 0.4 cubic feet, allowing the wheels to be stored in overhead bins, car trunks and under airplane seats. The wheel will fit any standard wheelchair and will support up to 300 pounds, and the fail-safe mechanism will prevent the wheels from folding accidentally.
