    This isn’t any ordinary wheel chair as it is recycled out of an used mountain bike. Designed specifically for Guatemalan’s rough roads such a wheel chair is intended to make the lives of immobile people easier. Manufactured by a company which comprises of American and Guatemalan students, these chairs are less expensive and more durable. While a standard chair costs about $400, this recycled wheel chair is worth $40 – $150. In fact even the people employed to make these chairs are wheelchair bound. Since it is known that 55000 people are in need of a wheel chair in Guatemalan, such a green wheel chair will bring mobility back in the lives of many disabled people.Watch out for the video here.
