For people like me that are handicapped, and struggle to walk every day. My designs allow those with weight trouble, physical limitations, and older people to get anywhere. As well as normal healthy men an women. Or those needing additional health benefits. Whether they can drive or need a sidewalk version. 

Describe who will use your solution (1,000 characters)

For people like me that are handicapped, and struggle to walk every day. My designs allow those with weight trouble, physical limitations, and older people to get anywhere. Whether they can drive or need a sidewalk version. My designs encourage health and mobility at the same time. Safety measures require a strong roll cage, sensors that won't allow it to start until all seatbelts are attached. They will be balanced and pull over there head. They will swivel in a track and allow families to eat comfortably together. Alluminum hulls, gears, and designs will maintain light frames and prevent rust. Thus not needing repairs so frequently. With the incorporation of protection designs it will prevent people from crashing against other vehicles of the same type. And by using a better control system those with additional motor skill troubles can better their lives.

Describe your solution's stage of development

  • Initial Design - you are still exploring the idea and have not tested it with users

Tell us about your team or organization (500 characters)

I am working alone at the moment, and will need professional minded helpers.

Size of your team or organization

  • I am submitting as an individual

Funding Request

  • $100,000

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

I would first build my prototype, and set up a website, as well as make a message on social media. And also request if a flyer could be put up at multiple local stores. The vehicles would start out being rented for 180 for a 6 day period under contract and usage warranty. That's 30 dollars a day. Society spends that on cigarettes every day if not every other day.

Describe how you would measure the success of your pilot (1000 characters)

How much easier was the day? How comfortable was it. Do you physically feel healthier even by 1%? Will you use it again?
