If you have not heard, “Glass is glass and glass breaks” or “Scratches at a level 6 with deeper grooves at a level 7″? then you are missing out on a great YouTuber, Zack Nelson. Zack is known for his unique and very entertaining smartphone durability tests and teardown videos on his YouTube channel JerryRigEverything (named after his grandfather)!
But right now, we are here for his very personal, important, and a Nobel DIY (Do It Yourself) projects, ‘The Rig’, which is “Not-a-Wheelchair”, but something more.
The Rig is an off-road, fast, safe, comfortable, and affordable Electric Wheelchair, designed for people with disabilities. Zack initially built this for Cambry (now his wife) at home, by joining two identical electronic bikes back in 2018.
I loved it when Zack shared the moments he presented that one-of-a-kind electronic wheel-chair to Cambry. Everyone did. It was a heartfelt moment and I believe we all wanted to see that project would be in reach of many others.
Naturally, Zack and his friends have the same in mind, and the result of their efforts is finally here, “The Rig”. It is customizable, affordable and it is an exciting ride. Customize your own ‘Not-a-Wheelchair’ right here https://NotaWheelchair.com/
And now, more in Zack’s own words:
We wanted to create something affordable, and capable and I think we’ve done it. Huge thanks to Utah Trikes for their help designing and manufacturing The Rig.
We hope it brings as many miles of happiness, adventure, and exploration to you as it has done for us. Designing an affordable bike that happens to be accommodating has taken us more than a year and a half.
Of course we plan on building and improving The Rig over the next few years. We welcome all suggestions for improvement in the comments! Let us know what you think!
