Solar-powered wheelchairs popular in the international market
According to experts, there is a huge scope for solar-powered wheelchairs in the international market.
Simple wheelchairs are mostly manual and can tire the user easily.
Electric-powered wheelchairs are large in size and expensive.
Researchers have been working on creating systems that will allow wheelchairs to work on solar power supply.
A study has shown that this will change the travel range of the wheelchair by 26%. The design of solar-powered wheelchairs is also better than the ones that are electric-powered. They have more storage space and are easier to transport.
