Tek Robotic Mobilization Device

dsgsg

Robotic support brings freedom to paraplegics.

Bring the device with remote control, board the device safely from the back, stand up on your own!

Tek Robotic Mobilization Device is the world’s smallest motorized standing movement device. It is only 15.6" wide and 29.5" long (39.5 cm X 75 cm). With these dimensions it covers only one third of the space of a small wheelchair. This way users can pass through many narrow spaces which they cannot pass through with a wheelchair of an average width of 60 cm. They can also reach places in their home and offices, which is not possible with any other device. Despite its narrow dimensions, Tek Robotic Mobilization Device is an exceptionally well-balanced device. It grabs the users from the balance points and prevents any misuse or unwanted movements that would result in a loss of balance. Correct standing position and balance are preserved by Tek Robotic Mobilization Device at all times. Read more here...

Before & After Blue Floors

Project by David

From David: We wanted to try something more creative than what was comparable in our price range from a store, so I decided to create a large slatted floor design with a 7 color pallet. I bought 4′x8′x’1/4″ tempered masonite and ripped it into 6-1/2″ x 8′ slats, routing a 45 degree 1/4″ chamfer (beveled edge) around the top edge of each piece. I used a finish nailer and adhesive to nail the boards down, then primed, painted with a gloss finish and then used a water based clear coat on top.
