UPnRIDE Robotics Ltd. offers next-generation stand-up wheelchair technology with a unique gyro-based, auto-balancing system that, when in standing position, keeps users vertical to earth at all times. Together with safety algorithms that help prevent falls in hazardous situations, these features enable UPnRIDE users to be more mobile, in standing position, outdoors and indoors, and thus improve their physical and mental health and reduce the cost of disability. UPnRIDE targets to a $6B market and aims to change the life of millions of wheelchair users.
UPnRIDE is the first and only practical, smart and robotic upright-mobility device for disabled and elderly people. It is based on a disruptive and patented technology that provides wheelchair users with mobility in standing position, and thus enjoying the benefits of standing throughout the day. Used in practically any urban environment, even on slopes and uneven surfaces, both indoors and outdoors, UPnRIDE improves health, enhances self-esteem, replaces costly training devices, such as standing frames at home, and reduces medical expenses to health providers and insurers.
The UPnRIDE has an impact across the board – from the individual to states. It will change the life of millions of wheelchair users by giving them a real upright mobility, allowing them a better social inclusion and improving their health and quality of life. Moreover, it will impact their families, communities, health insurers and states by reducing the overall cost of disability and increasing the participation in labor force and contribution to GNP.
