Zack Nelson is definitely a guy who knows what he's doing. In his YouTube channel called "JerryRigEverything" (Jerry Handler, to translate freely) does everything from DIY electronics to the production of ribs and chops.
Today Nelson has decided to team up with his wife Cambry to design and build a hybrid between wheelchair and mountain bike. To put it very briefly, an off-road wheelchair.
They were industrious, tested on tests (Cambry is a wheelchair user) and figured out how to produce these extraordinary vehicles at less than half the price of other similar wheelchairs.
And yes, we have seen such vehicles: in January we even greeted the arrival of the "Pod", real electric vehicles tailored to individuals (look at this Segway model).
What then similar to others this off-road wheelchair has nothing
Take a look at what the couple called a "Non wheelchair": Not-a-wheel-chair. In a video, the two show what he is capable of (and above all, I would say, what he is NOT capable of).
An intelligent project
In addition to cost savings, the special feature of this project is the emphasis on maintenance and service. Using standard bicycle parts the simplicity of repairing these vehicles is extreme.
And as they said in the video, they are ready to go into production. They have already opened to pre-orders, and not on Kickstarter or similar platforms. Directly on the official website. And with the delivery scheduled for September.
If you can't wait to get around with ease (but without falling), this off-road wheelchair is the gadget for the "able" and "disabled" for you.
