Climbing the stairs does not have to be a hassle for wheelchair users. There are already a bunch of wheelchairs designed to solve that very problem. The Scalevo is another stairclimbing wheelchair designed to make life easier for wheelchair users. It is electric powered and balances on two wheels while on an even ground. It has a set of tracks that can be lowered to climb stairs or other obstacles.
As you can see in the above video, stairs are climbed using two rubber tracks mounted on the bottom of the chair. Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) and Zurich University of the Arts students are behind this project. What do you think? Are you impressed?
