Turn on dime. RoChair steers with its single rear wheel from the handlebars.
Anti-tip wheels ensure stability. Integrated in the rear wheel is hub brake also actuated with the handlebar.
Lifting your body in and out of your chair induces peak strain
forces on your shoulders and wrists.
Because RoChair’s 20-inch wheels are located under the seat transfer
is a breeze. In park-mode just swing up one of the arm rests and
slide right on in. You’ll find lots of clearance to swing your
leg on over. Talk about easy transfer.
Save your shoulders, wrists, and hands.
An estimated 90% of all wheelchairs are push-rim propelled, a physically straining form of ambulation that can lead to repetitive strain injuries in the arms and, eventually, to secondary impairments and compounded disability.
RoChair provides a bio-mechanically efficient and non-injurious means of self-propulsion.
Leave your gloves at home.
Suddenly everything is aligned.
Traditional push-rim propulsion is tough.
Tough on the shoulders, wrists, and hands.
The RoChair employs an ergonomic, efficient, and compact
front-and-center mounted lever drive system providing propulsion
on both forward and backwards strokes.
Turn the handlebars like a bicycle to steer, extend the lever up
to employ more power, and pull back all the way to engage the powerful rear hub brake.
RoChair’s innovative new geometry and biomechanics make it the most accessible
manual mobility device ever. Whether you're a hemi, para, tetra, or just have difficulty
walking it’s possible to ride RoChair.
With the handlebar front-and-center, adjustable seating positions, and sculpted arm
rests the RoChair design offers built-in support to keep you sitting up straight.
Using the handlebar to propel, steer, and brake is a dream for those with limited
hand or upper body strength.
Where special accommodation is required accessories are available.
Our drive. Your mobility.
The ROTA powertrain converts reciprocal (push-pull) linear motion into
unidirectional rotary output. With one push-pull of the adjustable
length lever arm RoChairʼs front wheels rotate up to 2 revolutions.
Depending on how much input force you need, you can extend the
24-inch telescoping lever arm. Hills - no problem.
RoChair provides a less strenuous means of propulsion than a traditional push-rim
wheelchair, and offers significant mechanical advantage. This enables riders to
enjoy traveling quickly and easily over considerable distances of variable
terrain, camber and grade.
With a small footprint and fully articulated steering mechanism, RoChair provides
the maneuverability essential for you to navigate through your home, office,
classroom, public transport, shopping centers, and restrooms.
Maneuverable in confined spaces.
When you get stuck in a tight situation and need to reverse, spin, or
shunt nothing works better than giving your front wheels a quick push.
RoChair comes standard with push-rims on the front wheels.
Compatible with your life.
RoChair was designed to be compatible with your life. In drive-mode
you can row yourself to your destination at speeds up to 5 mph.
When you reach your destination just stow the propulsion lever and
roll in under your office desk or a table at your favorite restaurant.
Great form, function, and excercise.
RoChair will have you thinking about where you want to go
rather than where you can’t.
The 20-inch front wheels makes riding over uneven
ground comfortable and easy. Anti-tip wheels are included.
The ROTA powertrain delivers tremendous power to the front wheels.
With your center of gravity optimally located traction is provided to both front and rear wheels.
On variable terrain, camber, or grade, no problem.
The RoChair steers just like a bicycle. Turn the handlebar and the rear
wheel turns. It couldn’t be any simpler.
With the RoChair you have incredible maneuverability.
RoChair turns in its own footprint
just like your everyday chair.
It’s really skinny.
Big function in a small footprint. That’s what the RoChair is all about.
The RoChair is just 24 inches wide.
Standard doorways in a new home are typically 32 - 36 inches wide. Both
ADA requirements and Specially Adapted Housing Minimum Property
Requirements specify a minimum hallway width of 48 inches, with a minimum
doorway width of 36 inches to allow full wheelchair accessibility.
Cool. Classy. Compliant.
Mobility has never looked this good.
Because ROTA designs both the powertrain and ride for RoChair,
it's possible to address and improve things like vehicle performance,
handling, ergonomics, and design.
RoChair is engineered to be ANSI/RESNA compliant, the standard for the
You're coming with me.
RoChair fully dissembles in seconds. If you were thinking about a road trip save some
room for your new best friend.
Both 20 inch wheels have quick release hubs. The seat back and armrests fold down like magic.
Both seat base and back cushions attach with Velcro®. Perfect if you
need to throw them in the wash after your ride.
