Keeping a track of the required comfort level and problems faced by disabled people, the Tank Chair is a striking wheelchair ready to burn the roads with its power. Besides churning heads at the pool of audience making to CES 2008, it is surely a hit chair to be featured on all the blogs, thereby spreading the word c around about one such availability.
This material used to design this rough-and-tough chair includes a one-piece steel chassis with the trails made from ruggedized rubber and lightweight aluminum struts. Claiming to run at a speed of 5 mph, the Tank Chair Mk II has 24V, 2HP, 127RPM variable speed motor that extracts its juice from four Optima Deep Cycle batteries. Its inventor asserts that the chair can even sideline a golf cart. This is a clear indication that now physically challenged people don’t have to wait or think twice before going anywhere. It can be used over snow and during rainy season as well. Retailed at $15,000, the Tank Chair would hit the market by the end of January.
