Husband Invents Off-Road “Wheelchair” For Paralyzed Wife To Experience A New Level Of Freedom

Reports say that about 2.7 million people in the U.S. use a wheelchair, and special needs vehicles will become only more and more important in the future. Thankfully, this couple might have just the solution for many people that want to experience a whole new level of freedom, but can’t do it with a regular, old-school wheelchair.

Cambry and Zack Nelson are a married couple that invented a special wheelchair called “Not a Wheelchair”, and it’s actually a very capable and reliable off-road vehicle. Cambry has been paralyzed for most of her adult life, and she gets around in a wheelchair. Her then-boyfriend Zack Nelson wanted to help her go more places, so he spliced together two electric bikes with a seat in the center, and it worked brilliantly. Cambry was able to experience whole new freedom with the “Not a Wheelchair”, so the couple decided to mass-produce the vehicle.

The vehicle has a range of 10 to 20 miles with one battery, and 25-35 miles with two batteries. The maximum speed is 12mph, and it has a rear rack mounting system that can hold wheelchairs, coolers, a picnic basket, or camping gear. The couple’s goal is to provide something that is capable and affordable, and you can see it in action below.
