ElecSo Wheelchair
ElecSo Wheelchair

The ElecSo Wheelchair is a simple concept on how to improve on today's small flaws in wheelchair design.
The idea is to use natural energy resource - sun, and convert is to run the wheelchair for longer duration, along with smart use of lithium ion batteries.
The reclining feature also has been given a lot of safety measures and thus making it a safe equipment to use.
The battery and wiring unit have been carefully placed and connected, so there is no disturbance for the user.
There is a small computer and a foldable desk have been added, to make this an interactive experience for the user.
So ElecSo is the apt sustainable & safe wheelchair.
