Are you ready for change? Tired of expensive, fuel-inefficient and poorly designed wheelchair additions for vans? Looking for independence and the convenience of getting easily into the vehicle with your own wheelchair? Want a way to scoot around town while looking good at the same time? Welcome to the KENGURU®. The KENGURU® is a small, efficient, closed body vehicle that provides very easy and quick access while remaining in your wheelchair. With the KENGURU®, you can travel independently and conveniently up to 110 kilometers (60 miles) at the maximum speed of 45 km/h (25 mph).
One of the greatest advantages to the KENGURU® is how easily and quickly accessible it is. From the beginning to the end of the journey, you stay in your own wheelchair. You simply open and close the remotely controlled rear door and then roll in via the ramp. For safety, you fix your wheelchair to a docking station before starting the engine. Once on the road, you drive while sitting comfortably in your wheelchair, using the handlebar and the clearly visible switches fixed on it. The current model is for manual wheelchairs only, but soon, the KENGURU® will have a joystick to drive if that makes it easier for you and it will be larger to accommodate power wheelchairs.
