Wheelchair users can now finally get up a flight of stairs thanks to a revolutionary device which acts like a 'tank' to scale steps.   The state-of-the-art electric device can travel up to 6mph and easily makes it up a flight of 12 stairs in just two minutes.<br />
<br />
It is able to achieve this impressive feat after the user has turned the wheelchair around before reversing up the stairs.  The wheels on the bottom of the chair fold up and a 'tank-like' caterpillar track emerges, which allows the wheelchair user to make it to the top of the stairs.<br />
<br />
The groundbreaking product, called TopChair-S, is made France and costs £11,460 and could bring an end to wheelchair users' reliance on disabled ramps.   SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
