  • Its been awhile since real innovation has happened in the wheelchair space. Scewo is here to change that with the worlds most advanced self balancing stair climbing wheelchair. www.scewo.com/en/ This high tech wheelchair has been on my radar for a few years now - its amazing to finally see it in action. Climbing stairs - going off road... see for yourself! Nice work Scewo! (This video is not sponsored)

      @John Burley i apoligize if you feel offended, and solely believe that my comment was edgy.
      (even kind enough to spell apologiZe grammarly incorrect.)
      allthough, compared to the technology available in America, disconcerning the very steep, and un-justifiable price of everything health-related, i believe that jerrys video will show this to a broader audience, and even drive the company to create solutions for people with a higher weight.
      disregarding everything i said, it is no lie that American struggles with a huge overweight problem, and has done for the past 75 years, so i believe it is a good solution.

    • Andreas Ribergaard
      Andreas Ribergaard 2 months ago

      @Stan Lee i was not aware of this. my comment was based of the international average weight compared to other countries. all though i think it's great, i would argue that Jerry chose to promote this product because of its abilities, US made or not. but again, the whole point is to make equipment for disabled people more affordable. as Jerry mentions in his video, the technology for this stuff tends to be pretty old and expensive, although considering how many people would benefit with these inventions.
      like electric cars, the average price is still very high compared to other options, but i am a firm belivever, that it is something that is going to change in the very near future.

      I really like how the wheels and tracks are hard geared to the motor - if that thing lost complete power control, it would either enter motor braking (through a relay shorting the brushless motors) or freewheeling, which because of the gear ratio probably being quite high + likely a mechanical overspeed clutch...absolute worst case is it descends the stairs during a catastrophic electronic failure. Brilliant design and I really hope they can scale up and sell bajillions of them to (re)enable normal life for so many people.

    As a wheelchair user my whole life 48yrs. Seeing this chair is amazing!! I have a powerchair that lifts the seat up 12 inches and more, but does not do steps. It can't do off road to dirt terrain as it gets stuck often. I've had more issues than I care to mention with it too. The chair I have is limited to no snow or water, because it sits so low to the ground. I do hope this powerchair you showed the Scewo becomes available and insurance approves. My chair was crazy quoted at 52K yes 52K, I had to fight insurance to approve for it. I hope that isn't the case for when I need a new power-chair. I loved this video, and how well it is balanced. What is the battery life for this type of chair with all those mechanisms to get it up and down stairs and more?

    As a C5C6 Quad for 22 years (23 this May) I find this chair fascinating. Although my chair does rise, tilt & recline stairs are a no go. I don't think I'd mind going up but after a trip down I'd have to check my shorts because that would be absolutely terrifying. There's just something about the words down and stairs that just doesn't sit right with me (pun intended). That being said I'm glad to see companies focusing on improving the lives of people with disabilities. The feeling of being included is what I'd like to think we all strive for.

      This. This so much. As a disabled person whose disability isn't immediately noticeable, and I don't generally like to discuss it because of people's reactions, it is so nice to see Cambry being open and discussing everything and helping bring more attention to the subject.
      Seeing them live their best life together, starting a family together, working on projects together, etc makes my day. I subbed for the tech durability tests and the teardowns but the videos with Zack and Cambry are by far my favorite!

    The balancing game is well done...definitely comparable to the Segway. Going down the stairs seemed a bit uncomfortable. I do like the tentacles ideas of Spider like mechanics as a fail safe when going downstairs. I wonder how long the treads for the stair climbing wheels actually last sine they will experience more friction than most wheels.

      Nice, I have a question for You, as a person educated in different field.
      It is really nice device without any doubt, but I dissagre about it's design. It looks like futuristic version of (still) medical device - similar to artifical kidney. It is ovoid, rather bright and seems, a little bit cheap.
      Why almost all of machines used for helping people, have that, particular design. Far behind new, sleek tech.
      I'm simply thinking for something like, making wheels similar to 3 Wheeler, painting all of the device in matte colour (here it is), removing space, blue lighting and finally deciding between rough and ovoid (e.g. difference between back and front of this particular device).
      I wish, taste isn't an answer. I'll happily hear an(y) answer

    • ScubaAnt72

      @freedblowfish I hear what you're saying - I was thinking more about the 'autonomous' aspects and software control in a Tesla. IMO compared to anything else on the market at the time were a fairly huge leap forward overall (even if the panel gaps etc are wonky!) I was looking at it mostly from a Software/Electronics Engineering point-of-view because that's what I do for a job.

    WOW this is awesome! I wish there could be financing for these chairs for paraplegic wheelchair users. As an ambulatory wheelchair user I wouldn’t really need this myself, but for those who use it daily or perhaps on rent for those visiting inaccessible tourist spots this would be perfect. I appreciate you pointing out that roombas are given more technological consideration than disabled people get. It’s infuriating; but this is refreshing to see as some folks are taking us into consideration.

      @MonkeyJedi99 It's not so much about the insurance companies, and probably everything to do about the insurance companies. Their *SOLE* goal is to suck money out of client pockets and NOT pay anything if at all possible and when they do have to cover something they don't want to pay more than 1/4 what the service provider charges. So they see this $10k mobility 'accessory' (and it would be considered an 'accessory' as opposed to a necessary mobility device like an accessible vehicle) being sold for 40k and just say NOPE! We don't hold the patent to suck up that much money, so our clients do not need it. Here, they can have this 60lb foldable that was manufactured in 1967. Or this hov-r-round with the leaking lead/acid battery from 1995.
      The ability to put this thing in the hands of users comes down entirely to capitalism. Why sell it with a 12% margin when they can sell it for a 300% margin?
      Only slave labor nations like China (and other countries once China has enslaved the last of its population and can't sustain itself anymore) can force the price down because they'll unload counterfeits of this thing for $35k.

    Would be fantastic if they could make a four or six wheel model for quads. I'd be very concerned that my lack of core control would mean I'm constantly moving like I'm on a boat in the middle of the sea(Glad to see I'm not the only one). Does this have any tilt recline PCM function? Didn't see that mentioned. The price is pretty competitive with the average cost of a power wheelchair being between $20,000 and $30,000 after options. This seems to be more for people with limited mobility than paralysis but definitely has some very good technology that hopefully will translate to other DME

    This is so very exciting but nerve racking when Cambry was going down the stairs! My heart was pounding so much. Can’t imagine how she was feeling while doing it! She is pretty courageous! Hoping the price will go down so many people have the possibility to use it and make their life easier.

    THIS... is the future of wheelchair mobility! With a reach height of one Zach tall, ability to climb/descend stairs, and a top speed of 6mph, this has to be one of the coolest innovations I've seen in a while. Super excited for Cambry and all those disabled individuals with limited mobility once this thing goes on sale!

    I was holding my breath along with her. I know that there are tracks, but I can't be the only one that was worried about sudden traction loss. Losing traction on stairs as steep as those could be catastrophic. How does it provide safe traction on such a steep incline?

    Yes I'd love one, would definitely make a difference to my life (three major cerebellar strokes in 18 months).Same old problem though, people who need one of these are often unable to make enough money to afford one as they are prohibitively expensive. Some of us who are unable to use a manual wheelchair - upper body paralysis etc - would find a chair like this life changing. Our carers would find life easier too.

    As an intern I worked on the iBot Wheelchair at DEKA R&D. This is Dean Kamen's company, and the technology that the Segway uses to balance, actually came from the iBot project. My main responsibilities as an intern were designing and running destructive tests for various components of the chair as well as "test driving" the chairs. The test driving was through an obstacle course that simulated a day's worth of wear and tear on it. They were looking for (and got) FDA classification as a Class 3 Medical device (same category as a mechanical heart) in order to get insurance to cover a bigger chunk of the cost. I was always so disappointed when J&J pulled out of the project, as these chairs were amazing. They were more compact and more versatile than this one too.

      I, too, was an intern on the iBot platform. I worked on both stair climbing (iBot had more advanced abilities than publicly acknowledged) and FedEx Roxo autonomous delivery. I think the general consensus amongst employees was that Dean Kamen was dumping a lot of money into iBot knowing that almost certainly it wasn't going to be commercially viable, because he wanted it to help people. Don't think I can get into details about fedex partnership, but I think I can safely say that Dean Kamen & co are very much passionate about pushing medical iBot forward but there's just a lot of factors which make it a really difficult product to be commercially viable.
      Finally for my personal opinion, I think these types of devices aren't going to be commercially viable for a long time (>=1decade). Many robots are only commercially viable because they save companies so much money that their $100k is a drop in the bucket, but that's just not feasible for applications in accessibility and other household robots.
      Of course, opinions are my own and my own personal perceptions of others; they don't represent the company, etc. etc. Just based on observations and coffee break chats.

      @gold5th yes and that is a pretty conservative estimate 1/10th of a second to show the obserdity of trying this. In a real senario it will be closer to 5/10ths which would require resistance to reduce the acceleration by a order of magnitude more or less. Meaning still not going to work and if he tries to deflect will probably end up in a wheelchair himself.

    • gold5th
      gold5th 4 months ago +1

      @Ben Troyer Ahh yes, but in theory maybe able to redirect it's energy so it's now sliding down the stairs on it's side or back.. or at the very least cushion the fall so she hits him and he hits the concrete... Also 9.8m/s^2 is without any resistance.. if it starts to slide down rather than tumble it's not going to achieve 9.8m/s^2

    • Ben Troyer

      @relese_thebeast72 you don't know alot about physics do you. He can also lift a cannon ball very easily doesn't mean he catch it if you throw it at him at 25m/s. Well a cannon ball weights about 12lbs so 1/25th of your 300lbs lifting strength. Which means the chair has to be moving at 1m/s to require the same force to stop as that cannon ball. G is 9.8m/s^2 which means he has about 1/10th of a second before the force of that chair is more then he can move average reaction time of a human is 2.5/10ths of a second.

      it's a swiss company, and I know, that even some "normal" electric wheelchairs in switzerland are around the same price, so for what it can do, it's not out of the ordinary at all. thing is it probably isn't approved by anyone yet and thus no insurance will pay for it and getting it approved will probably increase the price by a lot. although I hope not.

      I know where you are coming from but there so many peoples that most people don't know about. First off, a lot of the people in wheelchair can't work so they are on social security. Limit and a very tight budget as well. So, with that Medicare will only pay of like 80% of a power wheelchair that they feel you need ever 5 years, i think. Meaning the standard models most want to add seat elevation to the chair so they can do things in the kitchen, but they have to pay for that themselves. Then you are going to need a vehicle to carry it. So that another $40 k plus. A new wheelchair van is $80 k these days. It really is a mess when you are disabled. They have tracked wheelchair to go over road in the woods sand mud, but they cost start at about $18k and go up to $40 k if not more and insurance will not cover them. Then you are just making it now how can you afforded to buy a $40k or $18k wheelchair? To build a tracked wheelchair you are looking at like $5 to $7k but the cost to buy one is over $18k. It's great that they can build it but you really got to fix the system so people can actually buy it and use them.

    This technology would be so awesome for the patients that I serve. I saw something similar years ago, but it hadn’t advanced this far.
    Now if only it had auto drop arms & a hoyer lift & transfer function that would allow the patient to be elevated, secured & lowered to the left or right for transfer to a bed, shower chair, commode or a lightweight wheelchair which could negotiate a home more easily, it would increase the independence of my patients & as an added benefit; if an individual has a caregiver; it would reduce the stress on them physically & mentally.

    Tbh, aside from respect for those persuing this challenge, this feels like a concept. its brute force in the sense that it has so many moving parts and gears and wheels and everything has a different purpose instead of something more focused that uses the same parts for everything. Making each part seamless with the other instead of transitioning into something else. The current solution is probably hard to put together heavy and requires a ton of maintenance not to mention hard to fix when broken. Hope its affordable and successful so the next version is much better!
