An Oregon company is promising to remove the need of transferring out of your wheelchair to experience the good, old-fashioned enjoyment of rocking in a chair.

The Wheelchair Glider reportedly allows wheelchair users to simply roll their chair onto the platform and begin to glide. The frame is constructed from lightweight, durable aluminum. The Wheelchair Glider Company says its device is so smooth and effortless, users can activate motion by merely moving their head, or the handles can be used for additional exercise.

The company offers three models of the Wheelchair Glider to accommodate children, regular-size wheelchairs, and one for heavier loads. Prices start at $695.
