Wheelchairs bring the gift of mobility to millions of disabled individuals, until rough terrain gets in the way. What if we could give people even more flexibility regardless of nature’s conditions?
This high-performance version is funding the original prototype designed to help the disabled in developing countries.
Continuum helped MIT’s Mobility Lab envision the next generation of the Leveraged Freedom Chair. This high-performance version is funding the original prototype designed to help the disabled in developing countries.
With variable speed controls just like high or low gears on a mountain bike, the new off-road chair was impactful from the start. It moved 76% faster on flat ground and got 51% higher torque on rough terrain. Most importantly, it delivered a newfound sense of emotional independence.
The award-winning wheelchair is actively being developed in the United States and will soon offer incredible opportunities for active people with disabilities, allowing them to go places they never thought possible.
