NINO wheelchair imageClearwell Mobility, the largest Motability accredited dealer in the South East, has become the South East’s exclusive supplier of the NINO, a unique powerchair based on gyroscopic technology, combining a Segway with a wheelchair.

Designed and manufactured in France, the NINO is controlled via a user’s weight distribution, enabling users to go forwards and backwards by moving their torso. With two central wheels, users can turn sideways and rotate 360 degrees on the spot using the device’s handlebar, with separate motors turning each wheel independently.

At less than half the length of a traditional wheelchair, it enables users even more freedom to move around, without the frustration of a traditional chair says the company.

Additionally, the chair has the ability to connect to a smartphone to monitor and control the powerchair.

Duncan Gillett, Managing Director at Clearwell Mobility, said: “The NINO is simply head and shoulders above other powerchairs and is perfect for people with good upper body strength. The combination of Segway technology and wheelchair design has the potential to revolutionise people’s independence and break down access barriers.

“It’s also a thing of beauty – something to show off and be proud of, and it’s not often you can say that about a powered wheelchair!”
