the rig by not-a-wheelchair is an alternative to wheelchairs that gives users with disabilities the ability to go off-road. the four-wheeled wheelchair features a wide frame that makes it look more like a vehicle than a medical-grade mobility device. ‘shopping for an off-road wheelchair can be frustrating,’ comments zack nelson, the creator who developed this product for his wife. ‘there are a few different options out there, but they can cost as much as a car or are super slow.’
the rig by not-a-wheelchair is fully electric and can be customized to the users desires, including frame color, wheels and range. it includes a rear rack mounting system to hold wheelchairs, coolers, camping gear or even a picnic basket. its high-quality parts are the same as the ones used in bikes, ensuring easy maintenance and the ability to transit all terrains where a bike would normally be able to travel.
designed for the outdoors, the rig is constructed with an aluminum frame, detachable bumper, and four inch off road bike tires. with a range of 10-20 miles (ca. 32 km) with one battery, and 25-35 miles (ca. 56 km) with two batteries depending on the terrain, weight of the rider and weight of the cargo, this wheelchair is perfect for those who enjoy outdoor adventures. and although the vehicle is strong, it’s better to think about it as a back road adventurer rather than a mountain climber.
