Pathfinder / wheelchair


Many wheelchair users can't travel alone in life and often need to passively accept help from others. Pathfinder is an intelligent travel system composed of wheelchairs, balance bikes and supporting applications. When they are not sure whether the road is passable, they can remotely control the balance car to explore the road and upload the road conditions. They can also control the balance car to take photos and videos to record their lives , and share with others on the app. Pathfinder inspires an aggressive lifestyle in a unique way, thereby helping users regain an optimistic attitude towards life.
