submit to reddit

Cracked star Brooke Nevin came by the GST studios to teach us all something about the electric wheelchair.

It turns out that Canadian inventor George J. Klein was responsible for tremendous advancements in electric wheelchair design.

"In the early 1950s George J. Klein developed an electric propulsion system," said Nevin. " That system revolutionized the electric wheelchair, which gave greater mobility to veterans injured in World War Two."
