Anybody who knows me, knows I'm a huge fan of dogs. Sometimes a quality-of-life design comes along that completely changes the game for our canine friends and makes me want to stand up and applaud. The Amigo dog wheelchair is just such a device. I think you'll agree that, after watching the video, this little Boston Terrier has experienced a quantum leap in freedom and enjoyment of his life. This from the site:
"israeli industrial designer nir shalom presents his canine prosthetic as part of 'thinking hands', an exhibition in ventura lambrate at milan design week 2011. the device attaches at the hips of small dogs with disabled rear legs and allows for increased mobility over other dog wheelchairs due to the dynamic and more independently moving supports.an elastic knee joint is set backwards, allowing dogs to access stairs and lay down and sit up on their own."
