Radical New Wheelchair Uses Nanotechnology to Improve the Lives of the Disabled

Abstract:
More than 20% of Australians use a wheelchair regularly or occasionally. Many wheelchair users need several different chairs in their daily life: a normal chair, a commode chair, a shower chair and occasionally a travel chair. This is expensive and inconvenient. The Freedom Wheelchair meets all these needs.

Launched at the University of Western Sydney's Macarthur campus by Pat Farmer, MP for Macarthur, on November 9th, the new chair uses an ultra light, ultra strong, nanotechnology-enhanced stainless steel tube to solve the problems. This tube is many times stronger than titanium steel tube and much lighter.
