The iBOT® Mobility System contains patented iBALANCE®Technology, an integrated combination of sensor and software components and multiple computers that work in conjunction with gyroscopes. Gyroscopes are motion sensors that help maintain balance. When the gyroscopes sense movement, a signal is sent to the computers. The computers receive information from various sources and process that information to maintain stability.
We thank Dean Kamen, DEKA Research for inventing the iBOT and Johnson & Johnson for developing and selling them for a while, but now, we are working to find a way to return the iBOT to production again. Mothballing this device when nothing else in the market comes close to providing our wounded disabled veterans and civilians alike with such Equality and Independence is a national shame.
