Cruise along with everyone else!
The unique design of RideUp offers the user eye to eye contact with their world, restoring dignity and a sense of inclusion to those with reduced mobility.
RideUp bridges the gap between power chairs and power scooters. By combining the best features of both products along with a high riding position, RideUp users experience an enhanced freedom of movement and increased access without the stigmas normally associated with powered mobility.
RideUp is designed for individuals that require powered mobility assistance to accomplish the activities of daily living.
“I am sitting so low it is difficult to interact with other people”, is the most common criticism of power chair, electric wheel chair and power scooter users.
The elevated riding position of a RideUp user contributes to the healthy benefit of weight bearing and active muscle use.
Based on a Scandinavian orthopedic chair, the seating position of a RideUp is the perfect combination of comfort with limited weight bearing requirements and a high riding position.
The patented seat mechanism of RideUp allows access to the device from the rear. With the seat opening to both sides, the low foot platform is then easily mounted by individuals with mobility limitations.
A secure seat closing process eliminates any risk of a fall when ready to assume the seated position. When seated, the effort required to transition to standing is greatly reduced.
Who can benefit by using a RideUp
People that need a cane or a walker for mobility support can enhance their independence and participate in more activities. Power scooter and power wheel-chair users will boost their self-esteem with eye-level contact.
Where can you use a RideUp?
Take it anywhere; to the shopping mall, the bank, the grocery store, the theatre, around the neighbourhood, around the house; Everywhere you want to go!
