  4. Loving the new style wheelchairs out there, too bad they cost as much as a car in most cases though. The one I’m using now, the Quickie Salsa M2, would cost me almost £7000 to buy. The Firefly wheelchair attachment is at least £2000. The van I’ve had for almost 10 years, a Sprinter with wheelchair lift at the rear, was about £30,000 at the time. These companies seem to think we disabled are made of money!

  5. A lot of great innovations in this video. I have an idea to improve standard wheelchairs but I don't know where or how to put my idea to use. Maybe I will figure it out someday. And for those who gave this a thumbs down…. get a life losers!

  6. Out frigging standing … Nice job … Good variety … Powered and manual … Love the Segwayish designs … Now if they made a boat with roro (roll on, roll off) access … Maybe a party pontoon with a riverboat style gangway …

  7. Is it politically incorrect to say wheelchair and wheelchair friendly vehicles now so instead it's "PERSONAL MOBILITY VEHICLES FOR ALMOST ANY OCCASION" jeez, very misleading. For wheelchair users though it's very informative.

  8. can someone confirm if there is a mobility vehicle combine with Pallet forks as a cross between
    so local deliverer driver's can ship heavy packages🤔 just curious😃

  9. man the Ziesal would handy on the farm with a trailer and a blade. MED people put a great info program mum loves to watch MED thank you for getting her interested again Glen & Reacher

  10. That moment you in the off road mobility device and it gets stuck or flips and turns over on its side and you’re paralyzed waist down…..

  11. Right at the start "Lithium ion motors". LI ion is battery technology. Perhaps he meant 'rare earth' magnet motors.

  12. Great video! Have you seen the RyanFlyer? It's a wheelchair accessible electric quadricycle that is just hitting the market! You can see it at RyanFlyer.com

  13. Want to know something funny? The Mv-1 has a starting price of 40K, and you need to PAY extra for a basic radio. Even the shittiest and cheapest of the cheapest shittiest cars has a radio as a standard. Not the MV-1.

  14. I don't have to worry. I can't afford a damned one of them so I guess I'll be depending on someone for the rest of my miserable life.

  15. I've never heard of lithium ion motors, I have heard of the batteries. Chemical motors? That's a first.

  16. while am not disabled i love these wheele chairs for those people wonderfull idea many thx to those inventors but please mention the price in your promotions

  17. Would have been nice to have prices or links to each item. Even as a list at the end of the video'

  18. Wow, some of these were really forward thinking and innovative. People with mobility issues are finally receiving alternatives to the old-fashioned wheelchair that's remained unchanged for over a century. Cheers to all the designers who thought up ways to help others! Great video!

  19. GREAT IDEAS!!! But, unfortunately one set back COST!!! These mobility equipment are usually very expensive. Averaging from about £5,000 to about £12,000 ( $7,500 to about $16,000 ) poss MORE!!! 😱. I understand that the companies that design & make these things need to be played &'replace parts amongst other varies overheads. But, shouldn't they be cheaper as not everyone with a mobility disability can afford to buy one of these.

  20. At 1:00, The DC-12 is by far the most realistic mobility chair out there for most of us. The problem with the most needed chair is that here in the USA can’t get it under Medicare or Medicaid. They refuse to approve them, and insist instead on supplying power chairs that are 200+ pounds, and twice the price!
    At 62 lbs., I can manage to get the lighter DX-12 into the back of my small SUV, but that’s not possible with the tanks approved by Medicare.
    So much for Medicare working for the people, eh?

  21. I'm surprised you dont list range on most of these. These are really cool designs, but if they have limited range….

  22. 大きすぎて日常的に使えない。
    車椅子が自由に遊べる場所も、日本では極めて限られているんです。

  23. I urge all viewers to unsubscribe from this channel in protest! They refuse to list the price or price range and links do not work! Break the channel folks!

  24. lot of really neat stuff but i get the feeling i'd have to win the lottery before i could afford any of em.. especially the SUV or the RV…

  25. Proving that if you have enough money, you can do anything in spite of disability. Meanwhile, the disabled poor still can't get their walks scooped, let alone in time to get to the doctor.

  26. Q triste yo no puedo comprar ni una andadera q necesito urgente x q soy discapacitada y ellos con esas bellezas q cruel😟😟😔
