Solar Chair Lets Disabled Greeks Swim in Sea - 09 Aug 2013 
Images of disabled Greeks using the "Seatrac", a solar-powered device which allows people with kinetic disabilities to enter and get out of the sea autonomously, at a beach in Alepochori, west of Athens.

Founded by a team of Greek scientists in 2008 and covered by European and U.S patent laws, the device operates on a fixed-track mechanism which allows up to 30 wheelchairs to be moved in and out of the water a day - all powered by solar energy.

In a country with one of the world's longest coastlines and thousands of islands, it has come as a welcome relief for many Greeks, boosting demand each year. Currently, 11 devices operate in Greece and there are plans to expand the network.
