    What happens if it is mounted off center? Does it still track straight?

    @oddity what you saw in the video is a proof of concept for the "ease of use". We are actually working on the mount as we speak to make sure it stays centered, among other things!

    Would You Like Test Our Power Add-On?!

    Hey everyone!

    Our team needs 4 more wheelchair users ready and willing to test the ProPulse for 3-4 weeks starting September 13th!

    We would come to you, attach the device, and teach you how to use it. All we ask is that you give us constant feedback on what you love, hate, or would like to see improvements on before the product launch.

    Since day one, we have been dedicated to being led by the users and not the technology. Now it's time to bring the two together.

    If you are interested and are in the DALLAS, HOUSTON, or AUSTIN area please contact me at:

    citryne.contact@gmail.com



    Fore more info on the device go to:
    www.citryne.com
    or
    search citryneofficial on instagram/facebook


    It's been a great journey with everyone on the forum so far. We can't wait to make you proud

    -Juan and the Citryne Team

    Phil is smart. I agree with what he said.
    These things just might already be protected by a patent.

    Since you have invented an add on, your advice should be taken seriously. Quickly thinking about it I doubt their would be any issue with the brushless hub motors but you never know. The controller might be different can of worms though.

    I see a lot problems with this device and I'm sure it won't work in it's current form. Seems like they have put the cart before the horse and have not done any real world testing before announcing its debut. All the things needed to make this work would almost surely violate my patent. I'm all for new ideas but this one lacks common sense and simple physics.

    Omnidirectional drive wheels look cool but they'd only be useful when the motors are off and they are in freewheel mode, assuming they have brakes, and you want to turn your chair manually. I see no other reason. There are so many other problems but I guess they'll find out during testing.
