Hey there!  Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Look ma, no hands!  The inventors at Ogo Technology have designed a totally hands-free wheelchair. As stated on their website, the company’s mission is “to revolutionize the area around personal transportation and mobility.”  Since the chair is completely hands-free, it is controlled by tilting your body in the direction you’d like to go.  This is great for individuals looking for a way to workout from a wheelchair!
The inventors of Ogo hope to improve users’ overall quality of life by allowing them to become more active.  To learn more about Ogo, visit ogotechnology.com.
