This Homemade Low-Profile Wheeled Mobility Aid allows one who is unable to walk or crawl to perform ground-level tasks (e.g., plant, pull weeds, harvest). Called a BiCrawler, it consists of two bicycle wheels affixed to a rebar frame on which has been laid a wooden platform. Motion is via manually turning the wheels if sitting on the platform or pushing with hands, arms, and feet if lying on the platform. The website shows the supplies needed and presents the step-by-step instructions (including pictures) for making this mobility aid.
