BENGALURU: Here is some good news for the physically disabled. A compact and battery-operated wheelchair-cum-car, developed by B V Narayana from AGS Layout in Banashankari VI Stage, can help the disabled drive without any hassle. 

The vehicle has only one handle which can be steered by those with a single limb. It works on a battery that can run up to 20km per charge of six hours. A single-seat wheelchair with shades around, it can b e folded and fit into a lift too. 

Narayana, who traveled 56,000 miles across 59 countries in 1979, was crippled in a road accident three years ago. A ligament tear rendered him partially handicapped, but he didn't lose his energy. 

"I traveled around India in 1978 with four friends on a bike. I had remodeled the bike into a five-wheeler. One friend later suggested designing such a bike for his disabled son. After my accident, I started gathering parts of a scooter and a car seat to design this vehicle. It cost me Rs 1 lakh," Narayana said.
