Power wheelchair BRO

Discover your everyday life in new ways.

Book a testdrive

It is time. Time to rethink, to combine technologies in new ways and to go down unknown paths: with the new generation of the power wheelchair, the Scewo BRO. BRO is the only power wheelchair in the world that combines driving on two wheels with climbing stairs. However, it is not just the unique technology, but also the distinctive design that sets BRO apart. A device that not only offers individual seating comfort, but thanks to regular software updates also keeps getting more intelligent and offering even more possibilities.

We are breaking new ground – would you like to join us?

Stair climbing

Say goodbye to detours.

Whether it is kerbsides, 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.

Seat/Seat slider

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 your daily shape and the situation at hand.

Out and about with an eyecatcher.

When you are out and about with BRO, you are guaranteed to turn heads. That is because no other power wheelchair puts such great importance on design. With its clear design language BRO transforms functionality into sporty elegance.

Operation

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 side. 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.

Transport

Off to your dream destination.

Fold down or remove 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.

Add-ons

Everything you need.

You can add to your new companion according to your needs. For this purpose we offer an ever-increasing range of accessories. Always in the matching design, of course.

Intelligence

Technology instead of hocus-pocus.

Equipped with sensors, BRO measures the environment and recognises for 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.

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.
