Chinese "Walking chair" climbs stairs

Posted:

BEIJING (NBC) -- After his wife fell and became disabled, a Chinese man developed what he calls a walking chair to help his wife navigate stairs.

He invented a chair out of spare parts that helps her walk up and down stairs.

The chair costs about $1,500 dollars. Much less than models developed in Germany or Japan.

He sold his home and used his life-savings to begin production of the chair, and now employs seven people.
