New chairs help visitors with mobility issues navigate trails, beaches

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ Division of State Parks recently received new chairs for visitors with mobility challenges.

Using the chairs, visitors can now navigate both land and water.

Produced by the Action Trackchair company, track chairs are electric all-terrain wheelchairs that offer guests with mobility challenges the opportunity to partake in outdoor activities. 

With a track chair, they can explore trails and visit parts of Missouri state parks or historic sites that are not suitable for regular wheelchairs.

These sturdier, more rugged chairs use tank-like tracks instead of wheels to allow guests to traverse some of the rougher, uneven trails found in Missouri state parks.
