Automotive aftermarket parts specialists Neuspeed recently presented wounded war veteran Staff Sgt. Odin Ayala with a $15,000 Action Trackchair recently in an effort to give him back some of the mobility he lost after losing both his legs after stepping on an IED (improvised explosive device) in Afghanistan during his third combat tour there. According to Neuspeed CEO Bill Neumann, the company chose the Staff Sgt. with the assistance of the Veterans Alliance of Southern California.

Ayala, who had been a high school football star, expressed a desire to be a coach, and Neumann said he and the rest of his staff hope the chair will “allow him to easily move up and down the field.” The Trackchair has a large, tank-like-tread. It can be used in snow, sand and woods, and can climb a 30-degree slope, according to the company. “You will go places you didn’t think possible. With the Action Trackchair you will be able to navigate mountain roads, campgrounds, woods, beaches, hiking trails, frozen lakes, shallow streams, muddy and snowy terrain and much more. In addition, the seating and footrest are fully adjustable, and the battery pack under the seat is capable of running the chair up to 5 mph with five hours of operation."

Note: Neuspeed is a division Performance Systems specializing in high performance aftermarket parts for Audi, Volkswagen, Mini Cooper, Fiat, Honda, and Acura.
