Image of the Day: badass high-tech wheelchair

Gone are the days of clunky wheelchairs. Thomas Ross and Dave Cochrane put together a sleek, rather cool design and even made some practical improvements along the way.

Let's start with the wheels. These two large, hubless wonders actually use a "rear ball assembly," so that turns are more controlled, making it a lot easier to get around in tight places. The seat is made from a fabric that distributes body weight more evenly, limiting pressure sores and circulation problems. It also has a built-in storage compartment on the seat back, so it's easier to carry what you need.
