One of the inherent characteristics of nearly all wheelchair designs is how they focus on having the user use their arms to move, turn and maneuver. The 'Ogo' looks to change this with a design that uses intuitive sensor technology to sense upper body movements to direct how the chair will operate.

The 'Ogo' was developed by Kevin Halsall who became inspired to create it after seeing a friend's difficulties when it came to traditional wheelchair designs. The 'Ogo' is currently funding on Indiegogo with hopes of getting the design to market by September 2017.

The 'Ogo' could help to revolutionize how the differently abled operate their wheelchairs and bring them an enhanced level of mobility not capable prior.
