YouTuber Who Created An Off-Road “Wheelchair” For His Then Girlfriend Starts Mass-Producing Them

Cambry has been restricted to the pavement for most of her adult life. She’s paralyzed and gets around in the wheelchair. So, trying to help her go more places, her then-boyfriend Zack Nelson spliced together two electric bikes with a seat in the center. And it worked. Cambry said she experienced a whole new level of freedom with it. Not only could she overcome — or should I say, overdrive — obstacles that seemed impossible before, she could do miles without her shoulders getting sore.

Fast forward a year, Cambry and Zack are married and they’re starting to mass-produce the vehicle they call ‘Not a Wheelchair’. Throughout that time, the couples built upon the original design, making it a reliable off-roader.

Here’s their video introduction of the off-roader



According to the couple, when choosing an adaptive off-roader, people have a few options but basically, but they either cost as much as a car or are super slow. So they put their heads together to try and build something that’s quick and light with a super long range.
