Organized by: Brian Epp

THE STORY:

After being in a power wheelchair for 5 years after being diagnosed with ALS, I have a dream to build a chair that will surpass anything on the market now. I love to get out of the house and put miles on my power wheelchair. The commercial power wheelchair only go between 5 to 8 miles per hour and only go about 15 miles before needing to be recharged. I plan to copy the build design of a custom chair that was built by a guy in the U.K. It is an indoor outdoor chair that has speed of 15mph and a range of 45 miles. I have all the plans but will have to make lots of changes based on what parts I can get in the states. I also plan to make lots of my own modifications so the seating will meet my needs. I have lots of highly qualified guys to help me build this but I need help funding this project. Thank you in advance for your help. Brian Epp
