The Troncone Engineering is an engineering services company, specialized in mechanical designing, prototyping and patenting of innovative products.
Thanks to the synergy between mechanical and biomedical engineering, the Troncone Engineering company is pleased to introduce"Pandora", the ultra-light wheelchair which gives you back the perception of balance.
Pandora's seatback is reclining back. It allows you to lean your ankles on it and naturally keep your equilibrium just hanging in balance on the self propelling wheels.
Pandora converts into a fun play tool to test your ability. Starting from now, the wheelchair is experienced in a new way.
The active sitting mode brings benefit to your spine and shoulders. Moreover, it allows you to move yourself and change your usual position.
Pandora is transportable and designed based on you and your needs. It's made of aluminum and it is the lightest wheelchair you could ever get.
The main effort was to grow and develop the idea in a simple and useful way and with acceptably costs. The idea was originated, developed and patented by Stefano Troncone, the Troncone Engineering’s owner. The product’s distribution could be entrusted to companies located in Italy and in other countries abroad and operating in the orthopedic field.
The main advantage of the market impact of this wheelchair is that it’s characterized by a minimalist design, a reduced weight that makes it the lightest wheelchair on the market and a special feature: the wheelchair can be transformed into an instrument of pleasure and fun; this original device employ the human body abilities of keeping balance in an interactive way. The state of the art about the manual wheelchairs for the disabled people proposes several models with different posture systems. All these wheelchairs, however, walk on a surface of support that does not allow the disabled persons to feel the sense of balance, a common sense of any non-disabled person when he is in standing position.
Its costs are approximately the same of a traditional wheelchair of this class, as the costs of implementations to allow the configuration change are irrelevant.
The final user takes advantage from the choosing of this product instead of a conventional wheelchair because the consumer obtains a high quality product in terms of design and weight, but with the additional option to have a wheelchair which can turn into an instrument of pleasure and fun, at the same price.
Moreover, the extreme simplicity of this aid guarantees the maximum functionality and easiness of use.
