Self-hitching electric chair trailer

We're always interested to hear of new ways to transport wheelchairs and this concept from a Canadian seems to be a first. As their slogan says, the Towter Transporter is designed to make moving a wheelchair easier !

The Towter Transporter can allegedly be towed by car or van with a standard trailer tow bar. This could mean that the purchase of a specially adapted vehicle may not be necessary and may provide a cost effective solution. The Towter Transporter is primarily aimed at transporting electric wheelchairs or mobility scooters, it features a loading platform that lowers to the ground when the wheelchair (or scooter) is going on and coming off. The platform is then automatically raised before the trailer goes anywhere.

Complete with integrated weather cover the wheelchair trailer can only be used to move the wheelchair or scooter and no the user cannot be towed in it ! which means they will need sufficed mobility to get from the wheelchair to the vehicle so this rules many of us out.

The Canadian inventor has created an app that allows the wheelchair users smartphone to control the trailer and is able to hitch and unhitch using an on-board electric motor and sensors to guide the trailer away from the towing vehicle once it’s unhitched.
