Ben Huntzinger was involved in a wreck on April 25, 2009, that left him paralyzed from the chest down. While he was in physical therapy, he started to realize the wheel chair industry was missing an affordable off-road wheelchair. He wanted to be able to return to enjoying the outdoors without limitations of his wheelchair. He decided to modify his chair to make that possible. What started as a way for him to get back to doing what he loves, turned to something much bigger. It has now become his life passion to build affordable off-road wheelchairs. That is when Spartan Wheel Chariots was born. Listening to his story of where he started and how far he has come with this journey is so inspiring.
