Robot Arm Grabs Wheelchair, Stows it in the Back of the Car

Here's a clever gadget that offers a practical solution to an easily foreseeable problem. Yes, there's room for your wheelchair in the back of the car. But once you've sat in your car, how are you going to put it there? For a wheelchair user traveling independently, this could pose a serious problem.

The solution is this robot arm that I gather was either made and/or sold by MV1 Canada, a mobility equipment company in Concord, Ontario. The controls are mounted under the dashboard. The driver uses them to control the arm, which grabs the wheelchair and puts it in the back of the car.
