Rodem, a new smart mobility robot, has officially been unveiled and will soon be launched in the UK after its parent company, Tmsuk, established a new base in Bristol recently.
The product has been designed to act as both a mobility vehicle and a wheelchair depending on the user’s preference.
It has been developed to avoid accidents that occur when twisting during the transfer from a bed to a traditional wheelchair.
The Rodem’s seat height can be adjusted to the height of the bed, chair or toilet and the rider can slide on or off the Rodem independently without the need for twisting.
The mobile application allows the user or carer to move the product out of the way when not in use.
It can rotate in narrow spaces like lifts and bathrooms and the chest support allows the user to be supported when leaning forward.
Tmsuk is a service robot maker established in Kitakyushu, Japan in 2000. It has more than 60 types of robots including an array of mobility solutions. Some of its other models include its universal vehicle, medical, disaster relief and communication robots.
Accompanying its new product launch and UK subsidiary base it has also launched a new website.
