Turkish scientists have worked very hard to re-create the wheelchair into something new, a piece of equiptment that allows people with spinal cord injuries more independence than any other device on the market.
The man in the photos below is Yusuf Akturkoglu and he was paralyzed five years ago when he fell off a horse.
His life is being dramatically altered by a new invention called the Tek Robotic Mobilization Device.
He can easily get himself in and out of the device without any help, and for the first time ever, he can stand or sit with ease.
This amazing new piece of technology will most certainly change lives for the better.
The Tek Robotic Mobilization Device should be available in the United States very soon.
