Mobility is essential when it comes to improving quality of life for people with reduced mobility. The project aims to create a new wheelchair solution with augmented mobility – improvement of bodily activity (dance, sports, etc.), new physical and emotional sensations – using body control (movement of the hand, torso, head, etc.) adapted to the person’s disability. The upper body is free!
Currently, no traditional or sports wheelchairs offer this “augmented mobility” feature. Competitors offer manual propulsion wheelchairs or electric wheelchairs as well as smart wheelchairs. These wheelchairs adapt to the person’s disability and morphology, but they don’t offer much assistance for rehabilitation or sports purposes.
