Underwater Wheelchair for disabled Scuba Divers (Video)

With the hopes of changing the perception of the wheelchair, a disabled artist, Sue Austin, designed an underwater wheelchair.

For Sue, the wheelchair represents freedom and now she extends that freedom underwater with her modified wheelchair.  Her modified wheelchair is equipped with battery powered propellers and large perspex aerofoils to control turns.

Sue's hope is that one day that underwater wheelchairs will become available at dive centers around the world for other disabled individuals to experience the freedoms of scuba diving.

Watch Sue fly her wheelchair underwater with amazing agility in the video below.
