Device: PURE - Personalized Unique Rolling Experience

The PURE (Personalized Unique Rolling Experience) team aims to develop a compact, self-balancing mobility device that offers users elegant, hands-free organic movement. The PURE device is discreet, minimalistic, lightweight and safe, and with a single point of ground contact and omni-directional movement, achieves a drastically reduced footprint and enhanced maneuverability, allowing users to more intimately engage with their environment and opening up life experiences that are otherwise inaccessible. PURE is the sole mobility device used throughout the user's daily living activities and creates life-enhancing opportunities while preserving long-term health and wellness.
