It is estimated that approximately two million people in the United States use wheelchairs. On August 13, 2003 the Federal Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) approved a revolutionary new wheelchair. The INDEPENDENCE iBOT 3000 Mobility System utilizes a breakthrough technology which actually enables it to climb stairs. This wheelchair senses weight shifts of the user and adjusts the wheel position to keep the user’s center of gravity under the wheels. Because of a unique stabilization system, the seat remains level during all of its maneuvers.
