GeckoSystems Reveals Concept Design for the 21st Century Wheelchair
Date:12/21/2011

of the robotic platforms now on the market are classified as "software ready" but they do not have integrated software and mechanical systems.  GeckoSystems has developed the CareBot hardware and software in tandem for a specific application, the CareBot elder care robot.

In just this last year the market for Mobile Service Robots has started to expand.  GeckoSystems received a request from Imasen, Japan's oldest wheelchair maker, to migrate the CareBot's navigation system to their power wheelchair.   As a result of this, GeckoSystems created the "Collision Proof Wheelchair" with CyberMobility™.  The company expects their "collision proof" wheelchair and an upgrade for existing wheelchairs will be the first product of this sort to be marketed.

The CareBot has completed Alpha trials, which showed that families readily accepted the unit along with their elderly loved ones.  It was tested in a home care setting and received enthusiastic support from both caregivers and care receivers.  The company believes that the CareBot will enhance the safety and well being of its elderly charges while decreasing stress on the caregiver and the family.

The company believes that the CareBot should be the first product that is introduced to the retail market because of its very strong return on investment potential for care giving families.
