Government​al Redneck wheelchair​s (2 pics)

“This is real: the government of Mexican state of Sonora gave this “special” wheelchairs, as part of a program to support low-income people. As the official communicate states: they are better than normal wheelchairs, because they are made with “special solid plastic” that allows use for bathing.”

If you want to read the story in Spanish you can go here: Excelsior or you can do like I did and paste the whole story into Google Translator and read it in English :)

  1. The chairs are the only plastic parts, the frame, axles, rims, handle bars, etc. are all steel.

  9. Awww… come on people. THIS is what government SHOULD be doing. Saving money, giving people that can’t afford them, something they can use. Yeah, it’s not a “real” wheelchair, but dang, they’re saving money. I’m sure it’s cheaper to give them another one of these when it breaks (or fix it), than to purchase a “real” wheelchair (where the company selling them rips off the taxpayers).
    Kudos!

  11. That’s actually not a bad idea. As long as they get a solid lawn chair and not one of those really flimsy ones.

  13. Venetta is correct, and you can check the site they mentioned. This wheelchair design is easily repaired, and produced cheap to maximize the number of people they can help.
