Turning tragedy into determination for the lover of farming.
Check it out:
Israeli farmer Gilad Wolf broke his pelvis in 2008, but he was determined to make a wheelchair that would allow him to continue farming. His resolution to take his wheelchair off-road, and his re-invention of the wheel, may soon be used by cars, trains, airplane landing gear, and virtually anything that uses a wheel.
The rigid design of a classic wheel becomes even more apparent, and more flawed, on bumpy roads. Most of the time, wheelchair users are “driving a rigid wheel with no suspension and it breaks your back and shakes your filings loose,” says SoftWheel CEO Daniel Barel.
