Clever minds are always trying to find a better solution to the wheelchair mobility problem. The world is not paved and graded to a specific maximum angle. Most commonly seen are wheelchairs with larger wheels. While the “monster chair” direction is certainly admirable, I’d put my money on an M1A2 Abrams over Bigfoot any day. Thus: the TankChair!
Tank Chair is a Custom off-road wheelchair that can go anywhere outdoors. Conquers Streams, Mud, Snow, Sand, and Gravel, allowing you to get back to nature, and can also climb up and down stairs.
The TankChair started a little over 2 years ago. My wife, five kids and I were in a cabin in the woods. To our surprise a herd of elk came walking through our camp. My kids, having never seen an elk before, woke up and rushed outside. My wife got in her power chair and wanted to see them too. As we went outside the elk had moved on about 100 yard and you couldn’t see the through the dense tress. We started walking to get closer but had to keep stopping and help my wife get her wheelchair unstuck. Anyone who has a loved one in a wheelchair knows what a pain in the nether regions that can be.
In case you needed an extra push to make the purchase, you’ll be supporting a good cause:
For every 10 chairs sold, TankChair is going to donate one to a fire department in a rural area so that they can give it away to someone who would not normally be able to afford one.
