Knowing your weight if you are bound to a wheelchair can be a hard thing to figure out. With this new wheelchair designed for the elderly and physically disabled, knowing how much you weigh is as simple as the push of a button.

The wheelchair has a battery operated weighing scale attached to it, and saves a lot of trouble to caretakers and doctors when conducting regular weight health checks.

Implications - Consumers of all walks of life continue to be health-conscious and weight-conscious. Products that allow consumers to frequently monitor their health -- be it calorie intake or weight measurement -- will undoubtedly continue to gain consumer's attention.
