Independence Mobility become UK distributor of CoMoveIT Smart wheelchair steering system
Leeds-based mobility specialists, Independence Mobility, have agreed a deal with Belgian technology company, CoMoveIT, to become the UK distributor of the CoMoveIT Smart wheelchair steering system.
Designed by a team of clinical and technology experts from the University of Belgium, the CoMoveIT Smart is a head-foot wheelchair steering system for people with complex movement disorders such as cerebral palsy, quadriplegic spasticity, and dystonia, who would not normally be able to drive a powered wheelchair themselves.
The revolutionary system embraces AI technology and offers pressure-sensitive driving, flexible configuration, and continual intelligence gathering, resulting in a relaxed and increasingly smooth ride.
It can also be integrated with other Bluetooth devices such laptops, smart phones, and tablets, further maximising the benefits of technology, and expanding channels of communication.
By using the CoMoveIT Smart, users can enjoy a level of independent mobility not thought to be possible before. The system can be tailored to their strengths and capabilities, enabling them to discover a newfound freedom both indoors and outdoors.
Commenting on becoming the UK distributor for the CoMoveIT Smart, Independence Mobility’s Director, Anthony Mitchell, said: “I am delighted to be collaborating with CoMoveIT to bring the system to the UK. It is incredibly exciting and will offer customers an opportunity that they have never seen before.
“Our team have been expertly trained to carry out assessments and installations, and we have plans in the pipeline to introduce the system to clinicians and their clients across the UK.”
Frederik Vervenne, CEO of CoMoveIT, said: “We are pleased to welcome Independence Mobility to our partner network as UK distributor. Anthony and the team share our passion for embracing technology to help others, and so are a great fit. We look forward to continuing our work together and bringing the CoMoveIT Smart to more people across the world.”
