A Husband Designs an All-Terrain Vehicle for His Physically Disadvantaged Wife. Finally She Can Reach Places That Used to Be beyond Her Reach

Such husband is a real treasure. Zack Nelson created for his handicapped wife a vehicle called ‘The Rig’ so that she could explore places previously inaccessible. This unusual ATV is based on two wheelchairs and can travel at 12 miles per hour.

But this is not the maximum velocity which is the greatest advantage of this invention. The best thing about The Rig is that it can reach spots that regular wheelchairs would never get to. The vehicle works so well that the couple are currently thinking of mass production. Hopefully more disadvantaged people will have a chance to explore as much as the couple can do now.
