ello is a walker that provides more safety and comfort thanks to its electric drive. Obstacles which are difficult or impossible to overcome with conventional, purely mechanical walkers such as gradients, curbs or heavy purchases can be easily mastered without additional effort. Additional functions such as an integrated emergency call, an anti-theft device, a positioning function, a lighting and an automatic brake support the comfortable and safe movement – and this means: more independence and quality of life in everyday life.
According to a study by the Robert Bosch Hospital, many users of conventional rollators have considerable difficulties in daily use.

“Somehow in the high age comes the phase, in which old people need support in order to remain physically active They provide security and enable an active life even in a resource-poor age. “

“The Rollator models that are commonly used today are reaching their limits in some everyday situations and can even affect the safety of users. A walker with integrated, intelligent technology that detects problem situations and offers solutions is needed here.”
“The wheels are big, the motor is there – the electric walker is so easy to handle that older people can be able to do it, too.
“I’m excited! The ello motivates me to walk longer distances again – thanks to the electric drive. So I can do something for my fitness outside as well.”

The basis is provided by proven Rollator models, which are supplemented by a patent-pending handle technology for control and a specially developed wheel hub drive. This is how ello benefits from a mature basic framework and we as a technology company can fully concentrate on the development of technology. In the past two years, we have developed the complete electronics including power components, power supply, charging technology, sensor system, drive train and control unit. Through the support of university institutes for machine elements, design engineering and design as well as automation and software engineering, we were able to optimize performance, weight, ergonomics and control.
