Have you ever wondered what’s the origin of an electric wheelchair? The history takes us back far, far into the past…
Supposedly, the first wheelchair to be ever made was the one from Greece or China dated to 6th century A.D. It’s still very unclear as to who invented it first.

I was walking my dog in the countryside and decide to take a shortcut through a field on my normal i2 tires. No problem passing. I think my dog is one of the greatest fans of the Blumil. Now she has a chance to cover vast distances with me. Riding through the field was actually a fantastic experience, and it wouldn’t have been possible on a regular or electric wheelchair.
