Ostrich Mobility’s Galaxy gives Smooth Ride for Differently Abled
Mobility for differently abled who are confined to the wheel chairs has been one of the toughest issues. Considering the condition of Indian roads moving out in wheelchair could only be a far fetched dream for them. Catering to the needs of these group of differently abled Bengaluru based Ostrich Mobility, a mobility solutions provider, has come up with their latest innovation – Galaxy, an electric wheelchair suited for both indoor and outdoor.
Galaxy is equipped with Split Frame, which is considered as one of the best all-terrain wheelchair frame technology and Automatic Wheelbase Adjuster (AWA). While split frame helps to negotiate the toughest terrains, Automated Wheelbase Adjuster enables them to adjust the wheelbase to match your driving conditions.
While sitting on the wheelchair, reducing the wheelbase can make it small enough to negotiate the tight indoor conditions. The turn circle radius can thus be reduced to a great extend. While driving outdoors the conditions may vary and there is need for a more stable, comfortable and safe wheelchair. This can be achieved by increasing the wheelbase of Galaxy. The wheelbase can be adjusted very easily with the help of joystick itself. t. In small spaces, it contracts to become more compact, while outdoors, where the terrain is more unpredictable, the chair can be adjusted to become more sturdy.
This newer technology based wheel chair has been designed by Mr Hari Vasudevan, Founder of Ostrich Mobility and his team specifically meant to adapt to Indian road conditions with a split-frame technology. Since higher cost has been yet another factor which has been barring many differently abled people to get hold of the electric wheel chair, Ostrich Mobility’s electric wheel chair Galaxy is considered to be cost-effective.
