Veteran helps paralyzed wife, plans to help other veterans with wheelchair invention

He built the Mongo Chair to help his wife. Now, he wants to help all of America's veterans with disabilities.


A military veteran has invented a state-of-the-art wheelchair to improve the mobility, independence and self-esteem of persons suffering from paralysis.

The Mongo Chair was invented by Brad Soden, who wanted to help his wife get her life back after a car wreck left her paralyzed. Seeing how much the chair positively impacted her life, Soden decided that he wants to donate a Mongo Chair to at least 60,000 American veterans who could benefit from one. His mission: to give veterans a sense of purpose, and put a stop to veteran suicide.
