The Roller Bench is an incredible new device that is designed for disabled people who need a wheelchair. Tom Fejer was the mastermind in charge of the design and the actual product was engineered by P. T. Zwiercyk and B. Horvath.

Tom Fejer states that their "objective was to design a device to assist patients who are newly forced into wheelchairs." The Roller Bench helps people learn how to drive a wheelchair and can also be used to provide opportunities for daily exercise. The Roller Bench is portable, so users can learn in the hospital or from home. Tom Fejer claims that a "further objective was to design an apparatus to reproduce real drive conditions, including various load conditions and lateral displacements." Using the device will help new users feel more comfortable when they go out into the real world, after having to stay at the hospital for a long period of time.
