Advantages of ello

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.

electrical drive
Safe uphill, over obstacles and in bus & train. More comfortable after shopping and longer distances.

automatic brake
No more rolling away. By automatic roll detection prevent falls and safer downhill (throttling the speed).

intuitive operation
Easy control for users of all ages through large keys, well-identifiable symbols and easy handling.

emergency call system
On the way in case of emergency call the relatives through an integrated emergency call. Can also replace house emergency call.

lighting
Security in the dark by footwell lighting. Better seen with front, back and side lights.

Positioning function
GPS positioning as an anti-theft device or in the case of inadvertently forgotten rollators.

According to a study by the Robert Bosch Hospital, many users of conventional rollators have considerable difficulties in daily use.

Technical specifications

Development

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.
