Known from.

Stair climbing

Say goodbye to detours.

Whether it is curbsides, single steps or stairs, BRO masters them all. Its tracks carry you comfortably and safely up and down straight stairs. This way, even the two steps of the restaurant around the corner become child’s play.

Driving dynamics

Uncompromising route choice.

Scewo BRO drives on two wheels – all on its own without the use of your upper-body stability. Thanks to the two large wheels you can navigate safely and nimbly on various surfaces. BRO also overcomes obstacles of up to 5 cm with ease. Even a walk in the woods becomes a pleasure.

Technology instead of hocus-pocus.

Equipped with sensors, BRO measures the environment and recognises as an example the end of a staircase all by itself. In addition, thanks to regular software updates, it is becoming more and more intelligent and is constantly learning new functions. You can update your BRO with just one click via the app.

Seat & Seat lift

Up high and down low.

Having a conversation at eye level, sipping a drink at the bar or taking something off the bottom shelf. BRO’s height adjusting mode makes it possible. It allows you to raise the seat to 87 cm or lower it to 45 cm. At the push of a button you adjust the seat seamlessly to the situation at hand.

Your command centre.

BRO dances to your tune. You control it with the BRO-App on your smartphone or with the control panel that can be attached on either armrest. The direction and speed can be controlled with the hand joystick. You can swap seamlessly between the two options. BRO’s operation is intuitive, flexible and adaptable to various needs.

Off to your dream destination.

Fold down the backrest, stow BRO in the trunk of your car via the ramp and off you go.

Alternatively, you can drive BRO into the car yourself and remain seated in it as a passenger. Nothing stands in the way of your next trip.

Crash Test / Passenger Approval

BRO complies with the requirements of ISO 7176-19:2008 and must be secured in the direction of travel when used as a passenger seat.

Six heavy-duty belts, tested according to ISO 10542 or DIN 75078 with a test force of at least 160 kg (heavy-duty class), must be used for fastening. Passengers are required to use the passenger restraint system (seat belt) of the certified vehicle at all times. BRO has designated wheelchair attachment points that have been tested and are to be used for this purpose. In the test procedure, the belt guide was awarded the highest rating of “Good”. The test was conducted with a dummy weighing 78 kg.

Access to and manoeuvring in vehicles can be affected by wheelchair size and turning radius. Smaller wheelchairs and/or wheelchairs with a smaller turning radius generally provide easier access to the vehicle and better manoeuvrability when facing in the direction of travel.
