The system’s modular nature saves money in two ways: first of all, it’s cheaper than a full motorized wheelchair. Second, medical institutions won’t have to buy one add-on for every wheelchair; they can just share the add-ons among their patients. The sleek and sexy look doesn’t hurt.

What do you guys think? Is it a practical idea?
