Geared for Power
Lever action and gearing means more power.
The Nordigo goes one step further than the competition by introducing gearing to the equation. The levers them selves use the fulcrum effect to increase the power of the wheelchair user but the Nordigos gearing increases this effect making propulsion even easier.
The mechanics of the Nordigo are straight forward, tried and trusted gears and levers. This system works and is not prone to break downs as there's very little to go wrong.
A combination of bigger muscles, the fulcrum effect and gearing bring you more power!
- Stage 1. Better use of the wheelchair users muscles.
- Stage 2. Utilise the fulcrum effect.
- Stage 3. Add gearing
- Result. More power for less work.
- It's not rocket science it's just smart engineering.
There is an engineering motto "KISS" which means "Keep It Simple Stupid". The idea behind this motto is to avoid over complication when designing and manufacturing. The more complicated something is the more room there is for error and failures. However the simpler something is the less there is to go wrong.
