Scalevo is now Scewo
Dear Friends of Scalevo,
Today we are announcing a change in our name, we are now Scewo!.
Because of legal issues we needed to change the name. However, our vision remains unchanged: To deliver a wheelchair with a customer-oriented design and an affordable price that will change the life of many people.
With this new name we are going to face the great challenges we have ahead. After the Cybathlon in October, we will start designing the final version of the Scewo wheelchair.
As for now, we are working really hard because Cybathlon 2016 is approaching. We have already done some tests and the wheelchair is performing great!
Stay tuned for more news and don’t forget to check our new website,
Our goal is to build an electric wheelchair which is able to climb stairs. Moving on the ground is accomplished with a Segway-like system by balancing on the two main wheels. The stairs are climbed using two rubber tracks mounted on the bottom of the chair. Our system is designed to compete at the cybathlon championship 2016.
We are supported by the Autonomous Systems Lab and by our Sponsors.

Because the Focus Projects have a very limited budget we are deeply grateful for the support from outside. With the help from many different companies we can do a good product. Those companies provide us capital, rabates, production and advice throughout the project. Are you interested in working with us? Contact us!
