159-11-27-15 OGO personal transportation
Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly
look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices
designed to help people who have difficulties with vision,
mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Look ma, no hands! The inventors at Ogo Technology
have designed a totally hands-free wheelchair. As stated on their
website, the company's mission is "to revolutionize the area
around personal transportation and mobility." Since the chair
is completely hands-free, it is controlled by tilting your
body in the direction you'd like to go. This is great for
individuals looking for a way to workout from a wheelchair!
The inventors of Ogo hope to improve users' overall
quality of life by allowing them to become more active. To

Easter Seals Crossroads, in Indiana.
