This journey is somewhat started from a story of a young man who had a motorcycle accident. He was blessed not to lose his left leg but resulted in spending ½ year using a manual wheelchair. He learned first hand how difficult that can be and how much smaller his world became while using it.
As an older man, while helping other people select wheelchair products, he learned that powered wheelchairs are overpriced, decades behind other types of electric vehicles in terms of technology, and so few are manufactured each year, it seemed to him like a totally broken system, and an opportunity for new and better products. This man is the CEO of GOGOTECH and that’s where the idea sparked.
