MODU is designed to assist those who face mobility challenges by supporting independence in the home environment. The intent is to create a universal tray, along with an ecosystem of accessories, which is highly modular and customizable per user for existing, widely used products on the market such as the walker, rollator, and wheelchair. We aspire for users to become more independent and confident to complete everyday tasks around the house, ultimately improving the quality of life, and enabling users to age in place.
