indieGo®/Right to Move™️
Everyone Has the Right to Move
indieGo® is an innovative power mobility device that instantly turns almost any manual wheelchair into a power wheelchair. The device allows a user to stay comfortably supported within their own manual chair while having all of the functions of a power wheelchair. The fully adaptable base supports a wide array of chairs, is both lightweight and portable, and is able to be operated with a joystick or alternative drives such as switches.
The indieGo was awarded a Google.org grant for innovation and development, is currently part of an NIH grant, and has been published in a research study looking at the effectiveness of use, with 2 further publications pending.
The indieGo is designed with all users and all possible applications in mind – from children, to veterans, to the aging and elderly, and anyone in between.
Possible users of the indieGo include:
- Developmental disabilities
- Medical frailties

The indieGo gives users the Right to Move, improving the ability to learn power mobility and allowing for easier access to power mobility.
