Victor Mobility is developing a next generation, innovative mobility device that addresses the needs of wheelchair users and those with limited mobility. The company is backed by The Royal Marines Charity and has partnered with world class design specialists, AMRC.
Victor Mobility are developing a next generation mobility device which properly addresses the needs of wheelchair users & those with limited mobility. Whilst most electric wheelchairs & mobility scooters can move the user from point a to point b, they don't enable them to operate in an able-bodied environment. Existing devices are typically bulky & don't allow a user to negotiate kerbs, historic doorways, sit comfortably at a table or crucially, operate in a 'social space' at 'social height' (i.e. 1.5m eye line).
VICTOR, will address these issues & be modular to adapt to a user’s changing requirements. We are planning to produce a device which is innovative & takes mobility into the modern age. We aim to take a disabled person back to social height, aid social interaction, help improve mental health & increase independence. In short, Victor aims to level the playing field for those who use mobility devices, and it will look awesome!
Our partnership with the AMRC (Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre at the University of Sheffield), has been crucial. World class design specialists have worked endlessly with us to produce what we now call VICTOR. Together, we are developing & testing various designs that comply with British regulations for a Class 3 device (meaning it can be used both on the pavement and on the road). We have produced an initial prototype which proves the solution, and in turn enables us to produce our first full prototype of VICTOR. We have been supported and advised by various charities: most notably by The Royal Marines Charity who have funded the first work phase.
