DAI award will help Centaur users ‘age-in-place’


Eric Kihlstrom, Chairman of Centaur Robotics, said: “Mobility is a major barrier to older people staying engaged in the community. By overcoming mobility problems, the Centaur helps people stay connected and engaged in their communities. It’s a simple but beautiful solution to a problem which affects millions of people in the UK.”

The Centaur will extend your reach

This is the second award for Centaur Robotics from the Design Age Institute. The award will help develop the Centaur so that older users can age-in-place for longer.
