Paying it Forward
ROBOT WHEELCHAIR RESEARCH
A desire to create and provide off-road wheel chair robotic bases that allow disabled children, adults and our ex servicemen with a platform that enables them to travel freely.
To enable a disabled child to drive up the beach with dad and go fishing, for an injured serviceman go camping with his kids. For those people trapped in a wheelchair to just explore the great Aussie outback.
Current Wheelchairs do not deliver and have failed to evolve to support our kids and adults confined to a chair, we can do better.
What we learn from robotic platform development is being used to develop a light-weight modular long endurance wheelchair platform at a price families can afford.
There are several test platforms on the scrap heap, with more testing to get a platform light enough to lift into a car and durable enough to travel up deep sandy beaches.
Is it Easy No, is it worth it very much, watch this space.
