Navability

Accessible navigation

Briometrix Navability understands the complexities of wheelchair navigation for both power and manual wheelchair users.

Any wheelchair user knows how problematic using footpaths can be with barriers in the shape of kerbs, steps, dips, culverts and surfaces in bad repair.  Add the impact of gradient and cross slopes and you have a picture of the effort required to travel the path.

Enter Navability: our Navability algorithms use the wheelchairs manoeuvrability, the environment (gradient, surface and obstacles) and the user’s propulsion ability to calculate the best route through the landscape.

This is our mission of Brio technology – everyone should be able to experience the joy of going somewhere new.

If you don’t understand ability– you cannot create accessibility

Your individual effort radar

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.

Your destination

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!
