Next generation motorised wheelchair to be launched
iBOT, the motorised wheelchair that was discontinued in 2009, will be released again in a more advanced form.
Toyota Motors, North America, is rebuilding the wheelchair that allows people with disabilities to walk up and down the stairs.
iBOT also helps users to elevate themselves to about six feet to hold eye-to-eye conversations. It can also travel through a wide variety of terrain.
Although the new iBOT’s features are not known, it will definitely be more advanced than the previous version.
