Man Builds Off-Road Wheelchair So His Wife Can Join His Adventures

Zack Nelson from JerryRigEverything on YouTube designed an off-road wheelchair so his wife Cambry could join him on his outdoor adventures.

Cambry became paralyzed from the waist down after she had gotten into an accident from riding horses in 2005. The idea of the bike first came to him one day when he wanted his wife to go biking with him.

He looked on the internet for an off-roading wheelchair but they all cost around $15,000 – $20,000. Since everything was so expensive, Zack started his own DIY project to surprise his wife and welded together two mountain bikes with a metal seat in the middle of them.

That sparked their imagination and both Cambry and Zack started working on a practical design that would be quick and light with a super long range. They did exactly that and fast forward to today, they now have what’s called Not-A-Wheelchair.

“We’d like to introduce ‘Not-a-Wheelchair’ a fully electric, super quiet, accessible bike that can go 12mph with a range of about 10-20 miles. Our whole goal is to provide something that is capable and affordable,” Not-A-Wheelchair wrote on their website.

The cost of the bike goes for $4,750 for one battery that can travel 10-20 miles and $5,450 for two batteries that will take you 25-30 miles. They come in black, white, red, green, pink, blue, and dark green. To hear more details and look at video footage of the bike click play on the video below that Zack and Cambry put together.
