A wheelchair that works in all kinds of terrain
When his late wife was left partially paralyzed after she suffered a stroke eight years ago, Peter Thompson, who lives in New Zealand wanted to find a way that his wife could enjoy the outdoors.
This inspired him to design a wheelchair that could help wheelchair users and those looking after them.
He created a wheelchair that could work in all kind of terrain. Thompson hopes his innovation will get people who suffer strokes or any other life changing medical event to get interested in life again.
The lightweight wheelchair which has rear steering, is called ViMo, short for Vitality in Motion.
