Pictured: The wheelchair that can travel up steps.
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.
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.
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.
