Self-balancing hands-free wheelchair by Ogo Technology

Finally, an electric wheelchair ( driven by electric unicycle, electric hoverboard technology Segway tech ) that is bound to make a difference for people with disabilities. Do anything and go anywhere with this chair. Just look at the off-road video below:

If the rider leans forward, the chair moves forward. When they lean back, the wheelchair goes backward. Operation of this wheelchair is similar to electric unicycle with added side to side controls that are more often seen at popular self-balance hoverboards that kids use. The only difference is that the seat leaning controls side to side movement.

Very cool electric Wheelchair Specifications:

The Seat

The most defining feature of the Ogo is the patented dynamic seat steering control system. 

With its amazing functionality, intuitiveness and benefits described above, your body becomes the joystick. Your eyes become the will to motivate it.

Another great feature is the seat pan, the seat position options and the back rest. “They’re perfect, leave them as they are” says one leading seating specialist.

At least 90% of the hundreds of trialists from around the world have remarked at how comfortable the seat is. They say it is more comfortable than the one they had customised for themselves, or presently use. They are not experiencing the pressure points because their weight is on the outer thigh bone and they are constantly moving their weight to operate the seat.

However we do know that the right seat is critical for comfort and function. Some folks are taller, some shorter, some heavier and lighter. Folks will want to try it out for themselves – that’s understandable, and some will want it adjusted. So, we are asking for your weight and height (this will give us a lead on the leg measurements) in the Order Form.

Out and about, made easier with ogo!

Here’s a bit about the seat for when considering height and weight…


  • The seat height is adjustable from 50 cm to 56 cm (20 to 22 inches)
  • The footrest has 2 height positions, 5 cm or 2 inches apart.
  • There will be 3 seat length options to suit height / thigh bone length.
  • The seat position can also be adjusted forward or back at 4 screw points in the seat pan

Cushion and cushion cover

  • The cushion filling is hi tech gel
  • Users can remove / replace with their own, e.g. Roho
  • The removable seat cover is vinyl – which means users can easily wash and transfer
  • There is an accessory option of a rubberised breathable compound. This compound doesn’t get so hot, but is more apt to “stick” on transfer.
