It’s tough for people in wheelchairs to feel ‘mobile’ when it comes to driving. They are limited to expensive minivans that have to be converted. But all that is about to change with an invention called the Kenguru.
When Stacy Zoern, who suffers from muscular dystrophy, laid her eyes on a small automobile company named Kenguru, she instantly knew this was something everyone like her would want. The Kenguru provides a way for those in wheelchairs to drive without ever having to leave their wheelchair.
Zoern has convinced numerous investors to make this invention a reality as the company plans on producing 1,000 cars in 2016 for early adopters.
The company wants to start by enabling those with wheelchairs to complete local errands and basic tasks.
