This device will help me drive

easier especially in reverse or to light a dark pathway, as we as being able to point things out for CNA’s

- Jack

I’d use it. The pointer would be very handy. Sometimes I get the chair in a position where I can’t see behind me and don’t move for fear of rolling over someone's toes especially in public in a public theater.

 

-Diane

 It is badly needed. ... ,

We are forced into dependency when we are perfectly capable of independence given the opportunity. Independence of this nature could save millions in-home care and save even more in humiliation and helplessness.

A person with physical disabilities can’t interact with the world the same way as the able, but there’s no reason we can’t use tech to close that gap. Loro is a device that mounts to a wheelchair and offers its occupant the ability to see and interact with the people and things around them in powerful ways.
