Omeo is a personal mobility device that has many uses. It is designed to be used for where ever pedestrians can access. It can be used as a primary or secondary wheelchair, medical aid, a toy, a piece of sports and recreational equipment, a general means of personal mobility for those who prefer not to walk. It is a perfect fit for folks with and without disabilities. Use it indoors, outdoors, at home and work or play. Omeo levels the playing field.
Some will want to replace mobility scooters, golf carts, or use Omeo for city or park tours. Ideal for the beach, off road/ farms, mountain bike tracks and sports venues. We have folks wanting to use it as a platform and tactical device for football, tennis, basketball, fencing, field athletics, archery, hunting, fishing - the possibilities are almost endless.
Omeo is designed to be used wherever a pedestrian has access, with some limitations- for example stairs, escalators, extremely rough or slippery terrain.
Some countries or jurisdictions have restrictions on where such devices can be used. It is the buyer's responsibility to check their jurisdiction's regulations.
What can I use the Omeo for?
Presently Omeo supports weight up to 110 kg/242 lb. Further development continues for the Omeo to suit a wider range of people - including children and those of a heavier build.
One of the key attractions is that Omeo will travel up to 20 kph /12 mph. But some countries do have restrictions. It is the buyers responsibility to check their jurisdiction's regulations and advise us. We will factory set the speed according to your specific jurisdiction requirements.
While the Omeo has the best safety and redundancy features of any self balancing device, users will need to be competent using the Omeo before going into public areas (at least 60 minutes practice are recommended).
Therefore, we recommend users wear safety helmets and any other protection they consider appropriate.
Users should always use the Omeo responsibly, within their competency and always be mindful of the safety of others, e.g. to travel at pedestrian pace when among pedestrians.
Omeo has in built safety features that will shut it down in case of an emergency, e.g. Omeo will come to a stop if it comes up against a high curb or obstruction that it is unable to master - meaning that it is very unlikely to tip backwards.
We do not accept responsibility for the user's safety if Omeo is used irresponsibly or for anything other than its purpose.
What do family members and professionals think of Omeo?
Omeo is not just about the users. Family and friends of those who have trialed the Omeo love it too. They have told us that their homes are a happier and healthier environment - that Omeo means more freedom and independence for them and increased opportunities to get back into activities they had given up - walking trails, sports, rediscovering the beaches and parks, shopping etc. Just participating in life with their partners again. “Grabbing life by the wheels.”
Caregivers tell us that they are not required to be in constant attendance, there is less strain on their own bodies having to manage manual wheelchairs or heavy powered chairs.
Occupational therapists and other health professionals love Omeo because it requires upper body movement - exercises core muscles - even if using the joystick. There is less wear and tear on shoulders and arms, and it assists functionality of internal organs. The increased freedom and independence, also assists mental and spiritual well being often resulting in a more positive outlook which aids recovery or therapy.
“At Omeo our goal is to help change lives for the better by making our ground breaking technology affordable for everyone who can benefit from it.”
