Army Vet Creates Tankchair, A Wheelchair For The Disabled


Army vet creates Tankchair, wheelchair for the disabled – Interesting Engineering.

Soden has no engineering background and didn’t even go to college but years of hard grafting and putting in hard work to research and development he finally came up with his solution to let the disabled live their lives as fully as they used to. Tankchairs start at $19,500 and come customised to customer specifications, things such as reclined back support or increased braking ability. “Money doesn’t drive me, it’s all about the smiles on the families and those we helped.” And he sticks to his word, all the revenue from chair sales goes straight back into research and development for future improvements on the chair.
