Segway-based outdoor wheelchair
The electric wheelchair Freee F2 is based on Segway PT SE i2 and represents a special kind of a mobility aid. It helps people with paraplegia, muscle diseases or walking disabilities to achieve a new level of mobility – even off the beaten track. Whether it be cobblestones, sandy beaches, woods and meadows or challenging mountain routes: There almost isn’t any terrain the Freee F2 electric wheelchair could not drive on.
The Freee F2’s dynamic stabilization technology with its five gyroscopes is measuring terrain and body position 100 times per second and is permanently balancing wheelchair and body steadily. An inclination forward is turned to a forward movement, an inclination backward brakes, respectively leads to a backward movement. The driving direction is controlled by the handlebar being moved to the left or to the right – an easy and beautiful form of moving intuitively.
