Outline

The wheelchair for those believing – COGY. This is the world first wheelchair that moves by pedaling. If you can move either of your legs even just by a little, you will be able to pedal this wheelchair. Our legs carry us as they move in accordance to signals from the brain. For people with disabilities, these signals from the brain cannot reach the legs. It is believed that COGY affects the most primal signaling from the brain to the spine. COGY is built on the principle that even the slightest movement of one leg creates a reflex reaction where the opposing paralyzed limb will move.
