Typical electric wheelchairs usually cost around 2,500$, and while it could turn around the life of whoever needs it, not everyone can justify spending such a grand amount of money, and are left stuck with rented wheelchairs. Our kit connects to standard rented wheelchairs without damaging them at that slightest and makes them mobile in a simplistic manner, for a fraction of the price, around 500$.
While every part of our kit can be bought separately, and be assembled using the tools in your disposal and a 3D printer, this kit has the added bonus of being comprised of parts which are abundant with every FRC team worldwide, meaning your local FRC team would be able to assemble your newly fashioned wheelchair.
