    Ergonomically designed for the disabled and the elderly folks, this electric wheel chair from Japan scores high on appearance too. Veda International Robot R&D Center’s Rodem M1-1 is the product that I am talking about. Priced at $5,300 to $7,500, this wheel chair runs about for four hours on a single feed (charge). Fitted with a joystick accelerator, it can speed up to 3.5 kilometers (2 miles) per hour. The USP of this wheel chair is its well-designed, user-friendly form. Users, immobile or old, can simply mount on it by just sitting on the bed, leaning forward and sliding on to the Rodem M1-1. Such a scooter-looking wheel chair will lure all those who seek assistance in moving about with style. Bet you wouldn’t be able to stop kids too from taking it for a ride, when vacant. Expect to see this good-looking electric wheel chair hit the shelves soon.
