Check this out.
That is so cool, absolutely and posetively genius!
Where can I get one? I'm afraid to look it up and find out it is only available in NZ and not in the US.
Have you enquired @Andrew? Thank you so much for posting this video.
Here's the place that makes them. http://riomobility.com/en/index.html. They make other alternative wheelchairs too. There might be other companies with clever wheelchairs too. I didn't look because I'm in an upstairs apartment and can't use anything like this
Thanks @Andrew, I'll look into it. To be honest with you I've been in such a bad flare up, since this past summer, that it's more a long term plan thinking about riding my wheelchair with such a cool attachment .
Got to think about the future somehow.
I don't live in an apartment building anymore, but still have a series of steps scattered around which make indoor/outdoor mobility an issue.
Let's hope we can rally up one day, a bunch of PR people and ride a cool scooter/wheelchair together .
Pretty awesome. But where's her helmet?!
I would love one. I hope more of these come to market so the prices go down. This one is $1,995 in the US and they will ship to some other countries.
Ouch that's very pricey. Let's hope the prices will go down.
Also you provide your own wheelchair that is on their list of compatible chairs.
@NK17 Count me in and some day we will do this!!!
However, the woman in the video looked like she has very good solid arm strength (which I do not have) so I would need someone to lift and assemble the bike part of the wheelchair for me. I also would not be able to roll the regular part of the wheelchair by myself. My current wheelchair is very light weight and folds up and we keep it in the trunk of the car. My husband lifts and unfolds it and pushes me in it when we go somewhere.
Same for me.
That sounds fantastic!
I will need a fully motorized one, too.
Or a really good treatment or a cure... I hold out hope that this is coming soon. In the meantime, though, I do need electric wheels.
Thanks, @Andrew for the cool link.
And here is something around the same line of sight When I saw it I thought "I knew it ! i knew existed!
The company making the video is in the Netherlands (I thought the "architecture" in the background looked too familiar), and it looks like they ship directly throughout Europe at least. The town is the same one where my fiance went to a technical university
I think I would be in the back in the bed while someone else drove the scooter ! It looks so cool though . want.
cost is £1,995 in UK - I want one, but way too expensive. I wonder if they are compatible with NHS wheelcahirs?
such a brilliant idea - although I would like mine to go a little slower - looked a bit scary!
