Disability is not a hindrance and one of the most influential wheelchair-bound physicists of the modern times, Stephen Hawking is certainly proof of that. With the view to empower the differently-abled community, Indian Institute of Madras (IIT-M) has developed and designed the first indigenous motorized wheelchair vehicle that not only be put to use on smooth roads but even on uneven terrains and rough surfaced roads. Named ‘NeoBolt’, the motorized wheelchair aims to provide convenience, safety and low-cost mode of outdoor mobility. NeoBolt is designed and developed by a team of researchers led by Prof. Sujatha Srinivasan, Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Madras, and the technology has been commercialised through a start-up called ‘NeoMotion’. The Startup has been co-founded by Prof. Sujatha Srinivasan and an IIT Madras Alumnus Mr. Swostik Sourav Dash, who is the CEO of NeoMotion.
