Meet the team

After his son was born needing a powered chair, our founder was struck by the mobility industry’s patronising rhetoric of ‘life improvement’, ‘freedom’ and ‘having the will’, which were in stark contrast to the ugly products with limited function that were actually available. Believing that it must be possible to fulfil both functional and aesthetic ideals, he set about assembling experts capable of transforming an industry. 

Our team have all experienced, first hand, the limitations of powered wheelchairs, whether it is through friends, parents or children, aging, cerebral palsy or Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Agreeing that existing devices were more like the rattan bath chair of the Victorian era, we came together with a mission to radically transform powered mobility and deliver a beautifully designed, yet functional product, fit for use by real people in the 21st Century.

The Centaur is just the start.
