When the invention comes into the market, its cost will make from 460 to 560 thousand rubles.

      Ivan Nevzorov, a graduate of the Mechanics and Technology Faculty of the Novosibirsk State Technological University has developed the world's first ever wheelchair management system that reads brain signals. The first tests of the invention are under way in Novosibirsk now.

      The wheelchair handled by the power of thought is one-of-a-kind in the world. Its users will be mostly the people that are paralyzed from neck to lower extremities, but have a well-functioning brain.

      The wheelchair produced by the Caterwil company can climb and descend steep stairs and surmount curbs. Once the development enters the market, the cost of such a wheelchair will make from 460 to 560 thousand rubles.
