As part of a new partnership, Numotion – the country’s
largest complex rehab technology provider
– will become the first U.S. distributor for NOW
Technologies’ full line of next generation power wheelchair
control systems. The Budapest-based NOW Tech
offers products utilizing Bluetooth and gyroscopes that
create smooth, intuitive proportional head control. The
Gyroset Glory and Gyroset Vigo devices resemble a
mobile phone headset that turns the user’s head into
a virtual joystick. Other companion products create
streamlined controls for chair tilt and recline.
SoftWheel is a unique in-wheel suspension technology
that enhances user-ride capabilities,
providing extraordinary rigidity and stability for
manual wheelchair users, effectively reducing
the level of daily pain and discomfort that
can result from wheelchair use. SoftWheel’s
innovative in-wheel suspension system
absorbs bumps and vibrations from uneven
terrain and surfaces so the user doesn’t,
resulting in a smoother more comfortable ride.
