Simply go. Even when you're in a wheelchair. That ideal becomes reality with the European release of the iBOT personal mobility device, by 2KERR in Oss (The Netherlands). With the result of 20 years of continued developed technology, wheelchair users experience more convenience than ever. Indoors and outdoors. In any terrain. The iBOT is per 15-03-2022 certified for use in the EU.
Gerhard Breugem, owner of 2KERR, has been a distributor of innovative self-balancing mobility aids for many years. He now also brings the iBOT to the Netherlands and to Europe. The reason? "This is more than an electric wheelchair, because of the endless possibilities. It is the only wheelchair that makes all parts of a social life accessible. Because you can 'simply' participate, wherever you are."
Using 4-wheel mode you can make any surface accessible: rough terrain, sand, grass, rocks and even snow. Obstacles and curbs are no obstacle at all. This way, nothing stops you to live an active lifestyle anymore. Still the price of an iBOT is comparable with other advanced wheelchairs.
Cities and public buildings are quickly impassable for wheelchair users because of the many stairs. The iBOT has a stair mode, which allows the occupant to go up and down stairs independently. Also the iBOT has an approved docking system, so you can drive a car from your iBOT. For the user that means: more freedom!
The biggest advantage is perhaps the social aspect. In balance mode, the iBOT goes up, and users look straight at another person. Also driving, up to a speed of 6 kilometers per hour. "Communicating at eye level while walking or at a party really makes a difference," says experience expert Thomas Weiand. "You really make contact."
The iBOT offers speed, comfort and convenience to people who want to be at the heart of society. Gerhard: "Experience it for yourself in our showroom. There I witnessed already many happy faces of iBOT users and their loved ones. The technology is magical. Technology that works for you!"
The iBOT is available through 2KERR in Oss. Certified medical device according to the European MDR regulations per 15-03-2022. More info on www.meetibot.com/press.
2KERR is the European distributor for Mobius Mobility, the iBOT manufacturer from Manchester (USA), part of DEKA Research. 2KERR and Mobius Mobiity have closely collaborated to accomplish the iBOT certification for the new European MDR regulations.
