The Velochair was developed by founder Kenneth Simons after he was diagnosed with Ossification Posterior Longitudinal Ligament, or OPLL, in his early 50s.
A lifelong runner and downhill skier, Simons could no longer bear weight on his legs for an extended period of time .
He found that most current mobility devices did not promote his activity, which prompted him to create the Velochair and restore his sense of independence.
This innovative solution can be operated by people with a variety of mobility challenges, providing indoor and outdoor flexibility to those who struggle with balance, strength, or walking distances greater than 50 feet.
The Velochair is a fun and safe way to exercise muscular, cardiovascular, and neuro systems.
