ABBY by GOGOTECH: How Their Advanced Features are Enhancing Life for Adults with Reduced Mobility

As our world becomes increasingly urbanized and technology advances rapidly, personal mobility devices are a crucial lifeline for individuals with disabilities or mobility challenges. However, the existing mobility vehicles in the market fail to meet users’ expectations. Bulky designs, exorbitant prices, and a lack of essential features compromise the accessibility and independence that individuals deserve. As a result, it’s high time for a change, as everyone deserves the freedom to move with confidence and dignity.

Mainstream power chairs, which people with mobility impairments commonly use, have significant problems affecting accessibility and independence. First, they are often very expensive, making them unaffordable for many people who need them. 

Another issue with mainstream power chairs is their size and weight, making them difficult to maneuver in small spaces or transport in a vehicle. Traditional power chairs are typically bulky and heavy, making them unsuitable for traveling or navigating crowded areas. As a result, users often have limited mobility and may require assistance from others to move around.

Finally, there is a scarcity of personal mobility devices that are designed specifically for the needs of individuals with mobility impairments. The limited availability of these devices makes them even more expensive and inaccessible for users.

ABBY by GOGOTECH is a new personal electric vehicle designed to solve the issues with mainstream power chairs, making them more accessible, affordable, and customizable for individuals with mobility impairments. ABBY’s modular design and tool-free assembly allow for easy customization and adjustment, while its software and IoT features provide advanced connectivity and automation.  Checkout the amazing list of features (below), planned for  ABBY’s launch in 2024:

One of the key features of ABBY is that it’s like having three vehicles in one. Its manual, power assist and full electric modes allow users to switch between modes depending on their needs and abilities. This flexibility allows users to maintain independence and adapt to different environments and situations.

Another unique feature of ABBY is its quick-release and tool-free DIY assembly, making it easy to disassemble and transport the device. This feature makes ABBY ideal for individuals who want to maintain an active lifestyle and travel with their mobility device.

ABBY’s design is also intended for daily life and increased independence, with adjustable armrests that can be lowered to fit under desks and tables without changing the natural orientation of the joystick controller. The armrests also rotate and lock in the up position to clear the way for the user to move in and out of the seat.

ABBY also uses cameras and sensors for obstacle detection to improve safety, providing visual and audible proximity warning indicators in all directions. Additionally, ABBY’s modular battery allows for extended range and can be quickly swapped out to provide a virtually unlimited range.

Finally, ABBY is also designed to be accessible and affordable, with a modular design that allows for easy customization and adjustment without the need for expensive customization. In addition to its physical features, ABBY boasts advanced connectivity and a cloud-based platform. A mobile app allows users to control and customize their ABBY experience and access real-time data on their device’s performance and battery life.

Overall, ABBY represents a significant improvement over mainstream power chairs, providing users greater independence, accessibility, and quality of life. In addition, its innovative features and design have the potential to revolutionize the personal mobility device industry and enable individuals with disabilities to live more fulfilling and active lives.
