When Liz Soden was paralyzed in a vehicle accident just three months before her wedding, she never imagined she would be able to regain the independence she once had. Missing out on family outings and camping trips became a painful reality for Liz. But her husband, Brad Soden, was determined to change that.
After years of trial and error, Brad finally created a wheelchair that Liz could be proud of – the Tankchair. This remarkable invention was specifically designed to grant Liz the freedom and independence she so desperately desired. Brad dedicated himself to perfecting the Tankchair, making it his full-time job.
With the Tankchair, Liz’s world was transformed. No longer confined to the limitations of a regular wheelchair, she could now go hiking and camping with her family. Previously, when they went on trips to snowy destinations, Liz would have to stay in the car. But now, she could hop out and chase after her kids.
The Tankchair is not covered by insurance as it falls under the category of recreational vehicles. However, Brad has a noble intention – to give these life-changing wheelchairs to injured veterans for free. With a three-month waiting list for new Tankchairs, it’s clear that this innovative and pricey chair, capable of moving up to 30 miles per hour, has become a popular choice among disabled soldiers. Many veterans who have used the Tankchair rave about how it has restored their independence.
Brad Soden’s determination and unwavering love for his wife have resulted in an incredible invention that has improved countless lives. Liz’s story is a testament to the power of innovation, proving that with a little creativity and perseverance, we can overcome even the most challenging obstacles.
