Overview

indieGo is a power wheelchair alternative for use in accessible environments like inside the home, in school, at work, or during trips to the park, grocery store, or mall. 

The system's uniquely designed expansion systems allow it to adapt to a wide variety of manual wheelchair widths and wheel sizes without any tools or modifications to the wheelchair. indieGo's lightweight rollable frame and collapsible joystick mount allow the entire system to be easily rolled, picked up, carried, and placed in the trunk of a car or stored between uses.
