SCEWO

DESCRIPTION

Scewo is a self-balancing wheelchair that can go up and down stairs independently and smoothly. this innovation offers its users a dynamic experience for navigating over obstacles, with multiple rubber tracks providing a smooth and safe ride on the stairs. With recent innovations in smartphone, automobile, drone, and even robotic vacuum cleaner technology, scewo was surprised to find the same electric wheelchairs from years ago on today’s market. the project was founded by four university students from ETH zurich + ZHDK, who managed to create and fund ‘scewo’ independently while building a wheelchair fit for the 21st century, with new technology and aesthetics. the ‘scewo’ wheelchair’s sturdy rubber tracks provide a safe and comfortable transition up or down stairs, while an extra-wide base stabilizes the chair, even on spiral stair cases.
