Imagine a barrier free life, everywhere, everytime


This is Scewo, a mobility device developed by young and pasionate students

Scewo Prototype


The Scewo wheelchair is the second iteration of the original Scalevo project.
It is still a demonstration prototype and under active development. The wheelchair is not for sale yet. But let's see what we can already do and how we climb stairs!

We build the wheelchair of the 21st century!


Our goal is to combine the new technologies and an aesthetic design to develop a new generation wheelchair. It will give back enjoyable and flexible mobility to those in need and let's them engage wherever life takes them.

Check out what we already can do!

The combination of the agility and comfort of two big wheels to drive around on flat ground and the robustness of tracks to overcome curbs and climb stairs is unique. The rubber tracks allow to smoothly go up- and downstairs in a safe manner. The transfers onto the stair and back to the floor are automated.

Safe stair climbing

The well established rubber tracks give a smooth and safe ride on the stairs. Thanks to the very wide base of the rigid tracks the chair is stable even on spiral stair cases. Transitioning on and off the stair is automated and accomplished by the push of a button.

Sleek and minimal

The user interface is kept minimal without reducing any functionality. The design is functional and allows for many adjustments in the seating position.

Compact and agile

The self-balancing technology enables rotating on spot and driving over curbs without getting stuck. The big wheels can go over obstacles without entanglement. It's compact size allows to fit trough all standard doors and maneuver easily indoors.

Driving mode

The self balancing chair allows for agile maneuvering on spot and dynamic driving also over common obstacles like curbs. The user can either use the joystick or a shift in body weight to control the chair.

Stair mode

The rubber tracks allow to smoothly go up- and downstairs in a safe manner. The transfers onto the stair and back to the floor are automated.

Track mode

To overcome slippery surfaces (like snow, loose gravel), bigger obstacles or steep inclines the tracks can be lowered to the ground for increased traction.

Safe mode

This is the stationary mode. It is used to get on and off the Scewo chair, getting below a table and for standing still. It is also possible to drive forwards and backwards during this mode.
