Any wheelchair user knows how problematic using footpaths can be. Barriers in the shape of kerbs, steps, dips, culverts and concrete in bad repair with varying surface, camber and gradient can really influence your ride.
Enter Navability: our Navability algorithms use the wheelchairs manoeuvrability, the environment (gradient, surface and obstacles) and the user’s ability to calculate the best route through the landscape.
Navability calculates your personal travel and fitness data, in tandem with the paths and environment ahead, to provide your individual analysis.
Every Navability map and/or path reflects your travel ability and effort as a distinct colour. That way, you always know how a path will affect you so you can make an informed decision where you will travel.
Navability will select paths to keep your travel within your ideal zone, which aims to preserve your physical energy or power chair battery life. Whatever path you choose, you can continually assess throughout the day how your travel is impacting you.
Navability is turning every wheelchair into a scout for information. Wherever you roam with Navability you will be defining the wheelchair friendliness for other users!
