In a bid to provide a more resilient mode of transportation for wheelchair users in Africa, a British inventor has designed the world’s first all-terrain wheelchair.
23-year-old Janna Deeble has invented the SafariSeat that can handle rough terrains such as jungle or desert.
Deeble felt the need for this after suffering an accident which left him wheelchair-bound for months.
Janna grew up in Kenya and was able to see the challenges experienced my Africans who try to navigate through rough areas with the standard wheelchairs. He decided to help by creating a special wheelchair out of bicycle parts. The wheelchair has four wheels and it is capable of traveling through rough terrains.Janna needs as high as £50,000 to achieve his dream of making more of this for Africans. He has been able to get close to achieving this goal through the use of a crowd-funding website.
The SafariSeat is created in such a way that it is easy to maintain and fix since it uses common parts that can be found anywhere in the world.
Certainly, something that can be very useful. What do you think?
