Join our presenter, Kenneth Simmons, founder of the Velochair to learn about the advantages and affordability of the Velochair. The Velochair was designed out of necessity and desire to accomplish everyday tasks while being independently mobile. It is the ideal solution for those who struggle with balance, walking, or standing. The uniqueness of the Velochair is that it allows a light cardiovascular workout, increasing blood flow circulation while not taxing the user. It allows the user-independent life mobility by actively engaging their own muscles to power the chair forward. A unique feature of the Velochair is that it is operable by use of just one arm and one leg. Learn more about the uniqueness of the Velochair through Ken’s discussion and the reason behind founding Velochair.
