According to World Health Organization, 75 Million of people need a wheelchair in the world. But common wheelchair is an obsolete technology. Many situations, both professional and personal, require an adapted mobility, such as:
• People with reduced mobility whose condition requires specific measures and dedicated amenities (adaptation of post, housing, access)
• Valid persons victimes at work of consequent physical constraints and source, in the long term of traumatizes (problems of back, knees)
All these situations restrain social (re)integration, generate professional disabilities, grade everyday life and do not have adequate solutions.
The Gyrolift is a pioneering mobility solution based on the combinaison of a gyropod and a robotic, verticalizing and stabilized seating modular system. Gyrolift is an universal technology that adapts to a majority of gyropods. The gyropod and the robotic module combined make it an inclusive electric mobility device for any user (with reduced mobility or not) to move sitting as well as standing. It then allows the user to move as well sitting or standing on a compact, maneuverable and totally secure solution. It also has automatic stabilization, an innovative security system and intuitive control to increase the comfort of the user during his travels.
For many years, there have been solutions (wheelchair type), electric or not, with or without verticalization, products of major players implanted. But these voluminous and stigmatizing solutions impose heavy amenity efforts (adapted workstations, widening of doors...).
For a compact and maneuverable device, our solution is the only one allowing a person, with reduced mobility or not, to move as well sitting as standing. This verticalization is based on a morphologically adapted trajectory without disturbance on the gyropod device. Its small size maintains almost standard working conditions that limit specific amenities.
Our goal is to enhance the autonomy and employability of people with reduced mobility (PMR) but also reduce the hardship of certain jobs performed by valid people.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform allows Gyrolift to grow up faster and imagine new possibilities by mentoring the team on CATIA Modeling, Systems Engineering, DYMOLA Systems Engineering and SIMULIA Structural Analysis to finish our product and imagine new features.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform also helps us enhance Artificial Intelligence of the device, collect and analyze of data from the environment to develop smart mobility features.
Our Gyrolift, mobile application and integrated sensors will collect data on the urban environment to assess accessibility. This data, collected by all Gyrolift users, will be shared to create accessibility maps in order to make it easier for people with reduced mobility to move around cities and to help agglomerations in identifying required accessibility work.
Gyrolift sensors and algorithms will also be used to anticipate security maneuvers in case of imminent danger or apprehension of the users.
Willing to relief handicap social pressure and improve everyone autonomy
The construction industry needs a digital revolution. Even though it is the world´s biggest employer, the industry has been posting profitability losses for over three decades.
Marine energies are emerging, being a credible alternative to electricity generation from carbon sources.
In 2017, the market of professional drones is projected to increase to 3,7 billion of euros (Gartner source). Services associated to drones grow up and the autonomy of the machines is optimized. From design offices to operating departments, what are the appropriate devices for collecting data? What applications can be predicted? Which territories can be covered and how
Urbanisation, Digital Transformation, Climate Change are the key challenges now. On Transportation and Mobility, the current paradigm is : one size fits for all. At XYT, we do not sell cars, we deliver tailored mobility solutions for our clients’ business operations, to maximize value creation in a better future.
