Crosswind Concepts designed the Freedom Chair so wheelchair users can travel across rough outdoor terrain and areas such as paths, beaches and parks. It may also double as an emergency evacuation chair to transport people up and down stairs.

The 19 pound aluminum chair is the brainchild of California-based Crosswind Concepts owners Jack and Debbie Wright. They have a son with a rare genetic disorder and started the company to focus on products that help others with disabilities.
