The wheelchair built like a TANK: £11,500 TopChair-S uses caterpillar tracks to scale flights of stairs with ease

  • TopChair-S is designed to reverse up stairs using caterpillar tracks
  • It also has standard wheels and can reach a top speed of 6mph (10km/h)
  • Engineered to give wheelchair users more independence going up stairs
  • The French-made machine is on sale for £11,460 ($16,368)

The days of ramps, elevators and stairlifts could soon be numbered.

French engineers have invented a wheelchair that's capable of scaling steps in a matter of minutes thanks to fold-out caterpillar tracks tucked behind its standard wheels.

Called the TopChair-S, the machine travels at speeds of up to 6mph (10 km/h) and can switch between a standard chair and 'tank-like' machine at the press of a button.
