Jan van der Linde, a wheelchair user, shares videos on his YouTube channel (WheelchairThailand) of his travel adventures.
Jan shares a video of a floating beach wheelchair that is an accommodation for guests staying in the resorts at Hua Hin, Thailand.
The wheelchair does not have the usual chair frame with huge tires that most beach chairs are known to have. Instead, the chair has a triangle frame with three wheels. There are two medium size wheels in the back with a smaller wheel in the front.
The floating beach chair has large armrests which in fact resemble flotation devices. The mobility device is moved throughout the sand and water by a handle in front of the wheelchair. A person pulls the wheelchair rather than pushing it.
