Permobil X850: Most Car-like Wheelchair Ever?
The clip above is from Permobil showcasing their X850 wheelchair. The interesting thing about this wheelchair is the striking similarities this wheelchair is to a car. The steering and many of its driving characteristics are essentially the same as a car, albeit on a smaller scale. There are also headlights, taillights, and turn signals which all happen to be required on European wheelchairs since, in some countries, wheelchairs are classified as vehicles. Even the commercial Permobil has done for this wheelchair is similar to many car commercials. Amazing. Check out the clip and enjoy!
