TankChair is a customized wheelchair that can overcome streams, mud, snow, sand, and gravel, as well as climb up and down stairs. It has been advertised as the H2 of outdoor wheelchairs and was lately featured on Arizona's local news station.

Implications - The maker of the TankChair states that for every ten sold, they will donate one to a fire department that will then give it to someone in need. The man who created the chair was inspired to do so because of an accident that left his wife in a wheelchair. The fire department rescued his wife along with the rest of his family when they were involved in an accident, so the firefighters remain close to his heart. The chair will create new possibilities for those who want to get out and explore nature in their chairs.
