Ogo Wheelchair

 This new wheelchair uses core body motion to control its motor, thus the direction of travel.  It has different wheels for different terrain, and does not require hands to operate.  This is terrific for the many people who have plenty of body control, but their legs won't support them.  Especially, imagine the usefulness for someone with serious damage to arms and legs, but their torso still works: a signature pattern of injury for IED victims.
