India’s First Indigenous Motorized Wheelchair Vehicle (H)

IIT Madras has developed India’s First Indigenous Motorized Wheelchair Vehicle. Called ‘NeoBolt’, it has a maximum speed of 25 kmph and travels up to 25 km per charge. It empowers wheelchair users with a convenient, safe and low-cost mode of outdoor mobility when compared to cars, auto-rickshaws or modified scooters. The country currently imports 2.5 lakh of the total 3 lakh wheelchairs sold in India annually. Products with comparable features are available only in the global market and are three to five times more expensive when compared with the products developed by IIT Madras Researchers
