How often is it that you go to the beach and see a wheelchair? Not very often; without specialized tires, manual and electronic wheelchairs would only get stuck in the sand. And maneuvering a wheelchair through snow is even more difficult.

The Zeisel off-road driving machine by German company Mattro is a solution to this problem. While designed and marketed to be used as an all-terrain sport vehicle by the able-bodied and disabled alike, it only takes a look to grasp its benefit to the handicapped community, who have as much of a desire to hike trails and go fishing as anyone else. It offers freedom to a demographic that is often limited in their options.
