Is This The Coolest Wheelchair of All Time?

Published by at 8:00 am under Images

Being disabled or hurt is certainly no laughing matter.   But it’s also one that requires a lot of care and attention.   Unfortunately in cases where a person can’t walk they’re forced to either use a walker, cane, or in worst instances, a wheelchair.  However, it doesn’t have to be all bad!  At least not today.

We just came across these pictures of one of the coolest pieces of machinery out there.   I mean if I had to be in a wheelchair there’s no doubt this is the one I’d pick. Built on a one-piece steel chassis and powered by high-torque electric motors, this custom Tank Chair with rubber tracks can take its owner anywhere and back.

Check out the photos after the jump…

Thanks to Tankchair for the pictures

    Having just broke my leg Tuesday night I need this now.

    If it was (one of) the coolest wheelchair(s), he’d be wearing swimming trunks.

    Still, it’s pretty cool.

    I actually worked with the guy who invented this. His wife was in a bad accident, and he used some of the insurance money from the accident to build the chair. He left the company I was at shortly afterwards to start up the tank chair.
