Greetings from Bangkok
My name is John DeBenedette, CEO of GOGOTECH. My team and I share a passion to use the latest EV & robitcs technology to improve the products available for people with reduced mobility. Our journey began with the desire to help people in our families and our communities overcome daily challenges. Having seen EV technology transform cars, bicycles, skateboards, and scooters, we had high expectations of modern electric wheelchairs, perhaps heightened by my own experience as a young man using wheelchairs for many months after a motorcycle accident, an experience that showed me how difficult manual chairs are to use and how heavy and expensive power chairs were. I especially remember how much smaller my world became until I could walk again. It was disapointing to discover that very little had changed in the last 40 years.
