This Hybrid Wheelchair Helps the Disabled ‘Stand’ and Navigate Rough Terrain

This is the Laddroller, a hybrid wheelchair with 4-wheel drive that literally elevates a person with a functional disability into a standing position with posture adjustment. By combining an “exoskeleton with a powered wheelchair,” the disabled can have more mobility and gain more independence in an able-bodied world of standing.

Invented by Greek architects, Dimitris Petrotos and Marios-Ermis Petrotos, this innovative mobility device is light and solid and has a small turning radius. It doesn’t require a lot of maintenance and operates easily from any position of the user’s posture. Using just the power of the wheels, a disabled person can instantaneously be in an upright position and operate while standing.



Made of a high-quality metal alloy frame, state-of-the-art electronics, and reliable motors, the Laddroller can also navigate rough terrain and easily climb curbs and overcome gaps. This life-changing product is currently awaiting regulatory approval before it can be made for distribution.
