New mobility device invented

Designed to replace both walker and wheelchair

 

Zeen is a new device designed to combine the functions of both walker and wheelchair, and extend the capability of each whilst overcoming some of their most serious limitations.

The inventors say that the device allows you to perform household activities such as cooking and cleaning whilst muscular, circulatory and cardiac health is supported (rather than reduced as it can be using a wheelchair).

 

 

They claim that you can rise up and sit down effortlessly and transition to walking or coasting easily and smoothly, with no risk of falling. If you are determined to stay upright as long as possible and maintain some ability to walk, the inventors say this device is for you.

The lifting technology allows the user to ‘float’ an adjustable percentage of your body weight, making it easy to stand from sitting.

    Anne, I’m excited about the Zeen too! I found this information on their website:

    Beta versions of the ‘Residential’ Zeen may be available on a limited basis by late 2019, and Lightweight Folding models may soon follow — initially, direct from our new factory in West Chester, PA, and eventually from dealers around the world.

    Also on their website is a place to sign up to get more email information as things progress. Click on the “Learn More” above.
