With 3275 exhibitors, including 1051 startups, the annual CES exhibition is lauded as “the most powerful tech event in the world”. For rising companies like Robooter, CES is a pivotal platform to showcase products, technologies, and solutions that significantly enhance daily life.

Introducing the X40: A New Era in Intelligent, Foldable Power Wheelchairs

Robooter has developed a comprehensive portfolio of electric wheelchairs, mobility aids, and living assistance devices.

This year, the spotlight at CES is on the X40, the semi-outdoor, electrically foldable wheelchair. Designed to address the challenges of lower limb mobility, the X40 offers ample legroom and operates smoothly on most surfaces without needing a turning radius.

The IF Design award-winning X40 is fully integrated with omnidirectional wheels, remote control, and an adjustable maximum speed for added safety. Equipped with a long-lasting battery and an easy-to-use interface, it ensures effortless navigation. An optional compact 10Ah battery makes the wheelchair conveniently transportable on various modes of public transportation.

Expanding Mobility Solutions with the E Series

In addition to the globally successful X40 featured at CES, in 2023, Robooter launched the new E Series, further expanding its range of innovative products. This series is designed with an emphasis on indoor and outdoor adaptability, meeting the diverse needs of elders and people with disabilities.

The E40 indoor foldable wheelchair, part of the E Series, is ideal for individuals with limited lower limb mobility. It features a user-friendly, two-step folding mechanism, ample legroom, and a compact turning radius. Its ergonomic backrest and intelligent software, with cruise control and speed limit functions, provide unparalleled comfort and ease of use.

For outdoor adventures, the E60 series showcases advanced technologies. The E60 and E60-A models are equipped with 10-inch omnidirectional wheels, while the E60Pro and E60Pro-A feature larger 12-inch wheels, conquering obstacles up to 3.1 inches in height. Their shock-absorbing springs and high-performance omnidirectional wheels allow free movement in any direction, enhancing navigation in complex terrains and a variety of outdoor environments. When folded, these wheelchairs easily fit into car trunks, promoting convenient travel and accessibility.

Robooter’s Autonomous Mobility: A Benchmark in Smart Infrastructure Integration

Robooter’s autonomous mobility solutions are setting new standards in smart infrastructure integration, illustrating the transformative power of technology in traditional sectors.

Robooter’s intuitive mobile app bridges the gap between devices, offering seamless navigation and intelligent assistance. An innovative blend of AI and machine vision ensures a user experience that is natural and responsive.

For many seniors hoping to look and feel their best, there are plenty of options, from the clothing they wear to products they use every day. Choosing more ‘stylish’ safety accessories is one way to go.

To improve quality of life and inspire confidence, Medline, a leading provider of consumer medical products, teamed up with Martha Stewart to introduce the Martha Stewart Home Comfort Care Collection. The line of design-inspired safety and mobility products combines sophisticated design and dependability to help those who use them look and feel their best.

“We are excited to enter into this unique partnership,” said Dawn Freitag, Medline senior marketing manager. “Martha Stewart’s signature style has always set the standard for better, more enjoyable living and this line of mobility and bath safety products is no exception. We believe these fashionable, modern designs along with our top-rated quality and value pricing will help seniors live their happiest, healthiest lives with exceptional safety, security and style.”

Around the Home
The right mobility aid can help you navigate your home. One option, the Adjustable Rolling Walker, combines a chic, sporty checked pattern with renowned functional features to help you easily stand and walk safely and independently. Its smooth-rolling, all-terrain wheels make it easy to get around in or outside of your home while push-down, locking brakes are ready for a rest stop at any time. Plus, it easily folds for travel and storage, and features under-seat storage and adjustable easy-grip handles for a custom fit and fashionable function.

For the Bathroom
The most essential purpose of bathroom safety aids is to prevent falls on wet, slippery surfaces. Beyond securely-attached bath mats and grab bars, the Martha Stewart Euro-Style Shower Chair allows you to sit while showering for extra peace of mind. With built-in handgrips and a backrest for comfort, the rust-resistant chair also features adjustable, push-button height settings to improve stability and built-in Microban protection to resist mold and mildew.

In the Bedroom
There are numerous products designed to maximize rest, relaxation and safety in and around your bed. To help you get in and out of bed, an Adjustable Bed Assist Bar slides around the side of the mattress – without floor legs that may pose a tripping hazard – to offer support. With a stylish faux woodgrain bag design and neutral color, the bar seamlessly blends in with bedding and linens to provide both function and flair.
