A future of imagined uses for digital systems empowering human bodies. Here we have a digi-med use — introducing Ogo, a digital+wheelchair vision
What Do You Get When You Cross a Segway With a Wheelchair? Brilliant.

An intuitive, hands-free wheelchair that promises new levels of freedom for paraplegics.
Called the Ogo (‘oh-go’), creators say it is smaller, lighter, and faster than any other motorized wheelchair…
The Ogo wheelchair is electric powered, and unlike the Segway, which requires the operator to lean on the handlebar to steer it; the wheelchair has been made ultra responsive to be controlled by movement of the rider’s core muscles – lean forward to accelerate, and leaning backwards to brake.
