Saving lives and improving quality of life.

RE2 Robotics is committed to a simple mission: Developing robotic technology that saves lives or improves quality of life for humans across the globe. Since partnering with the University of Pittsburgh Human Engineering Research Lab, RE2 Robotics has been investigating the needs of people with mobility challenges to determine how our technology might be able to help.

To do this, we need your input! We seek feedback from people who currently use electric power wheelchairs, and may also depend upon caregivers to support the various activities of daily living. We hope to understand your needs and desires so that we might able to design the appropriate technology to address them. As such, we hope you might be able to give us 5 minutes of your time to fill out the below survey. This survey will help to better guide our team when innovating future technology to improve the independence of people with mobility challenges.
