“ I’ve even given up on going to the grocery store two blocks away. ” She did not want to be seen in public as a wheelchair user. She disliked the negative perceptions associated with wheelchairs; that he must be ill or weak. We realized that many people desired this kind of innovation in the mobility industry. Our mission is to make technology that is minimalistic, functional and stylish. We intend to fundamentally change the attitudes of personal mobility users, as well as the general perceptions of personal mobility.
