The latest introduction (at press time) to Numotion’s online store is the TEK RMD (for “robotic mobilization device”) from Matia Robotics. Numotion, TEK’s exclusive American distributor, describes it as a motorized standing movement device for manual wheelchair users, who can transfer into and operate the TEK independently thanks to its design. Boarding the TEK is done from the back of the device, and it uses a gas spring mechanism to balance the weight of the user. The TEK could draw comparisons in various ways to a patient lift, a standing frame and a manual wheelchair. But in function and operation (it drives via a joystick), TEK has unique qualities, including a smaller footprint than a traditional standing frame, and a smaller turning footprint and a more upright stance than a traditional standing wheelchair, which could make it easier for TEK users to reach and engage in various activities while standing. A remote control enables users to independently bring the TEK to them and send it away.
