The Nimbl wheelchair, designed by Lawrence Kwok, is intended for use in a home that hasn't been retrofitted for full handicap access. But why stay home when your wheelchair looks this good.

The Nimbl, living up to its name, features hubless wheels with a short wheelbase for increased maneuverability. But that's not the only unique feature of the chair's design.

The Nimbl also sports a motorized seat that can lift the operator several feet in the air, activated by a control panel in the chair's armrest. Though its currently only a concept, it wouldn't hurt current wheelchair makers to take note of the Nimbl's form or its function. [designboom]
