Off-Road Wheelchair

For several months after his tragic accident in 1994, Jerry was bound to a wheelchair—first it was an electric one, then he graduated to a manual wheelchair…then, and we will always be thankful, to crutches, a walker…and finally, nothing! So, we know first hand how limiting it is to depend on a wheelchair, and we have friends who still must use a wheel chair. No matter how determined a person is, a regular wheelchair has lots of limitations. Look at this, though! An off-road wheelchair. The news of this exciting advancement comes from Gizmodo.

Rugged Wheelchair Lets Disabled Go Off-road

Tank%20Chair.jpg It may look like some oversized BattleBot, but the Tank Chair is a rugged, off-road wheelchair that lets anybody with leg injuries “get back to nature.” Each chair is custom built and can take on any type of terrain. There’s no word on pricing, but any wheelchair that looks this cool has got to be worth the splurge. Hit the jump for some extra shots.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 83 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 63 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)
