Being wheelchair-bound is a huge burden for people who have physical limitations and disabilities. The sad truth is that not many places accommodate people in wheelchairs, and being bound to a chair keeps people from living their lives to the fullest. Traditional wheelchairs are cumbersome, and they can put a huge strain on people who have to use them every day.
But this new invention — called the Ogo Wheelchair — combines the technology and the easy-to-use nature of Segways with traditional wheelchair design. It provides users with hands-free operation and two all-terrain wheels, which will allow them to experience everything that life has to offer.
Finally, someone has come up with an invention that will give disabled people the sense of freedom and independence that they deserve. For those of us who are fortunate enough to be fully mobile, it’s easy to ignore the fact that traditional wheelchairs are doing a major disservice to their users. Technological developments like this are long overdue, and we’re so glad that someone took the initiative to do something good for the world.
