The Tek RMD®

Change your perspective, not your world

The all new Tek Robotic Mobilization Device is not a wheelchair alternative, but a brand new mobility platform that completely reimagines the way individuals with walking disabilities are able to move in the world. The ability to independently and safely sit, stand, and navigate environments that were once inaccessible, is now possible, safe, and available in many places around the world. The all new Tek RMD® comes in an indoor and outdoor model, with an optional motorized electric lift and foldable seat. Tek RMD is a patented, CE Marked, and FDA 510(k) cleared technology.

The Tek RMD’s small footprint allows users to go places and reach items otherwise unavailable in a standard wheelchair whether at home or at work. By minimizing the renovation required for living spaces the Tek RMD often decreases overall costs to living with a walking disability.

AVAILABLE Tek RMD® CONFIGURATIONS

Standard Tek

RMD Model

Boarding from the back

The Tek RMD can be maneuvered easily by the user and the user can board the device securely from its back. Mounting and dismounting the device can be done successfully in a much safer way since the user is doing so while in a seated position. 

Joystick + Remote Control

Tek RMD’s Remote Control allows the user to be free from the device. The user can sit on the couch, office chair, or lay to the bed, send the Tek RMD away, and bring it back with the remote control when needed.

Assisted Living

It is very easy and quick to stand up and sit down with Tek RMD. The suspension system containing gas spring mechanism balances the weight of the user so that standing up requires a gentle pull.

Introducing the

Electric Lift

The all new Tek RMD® now has an optional Electric Stander to make moving from a sitting to standing position easier.

Introducing the

Outdoor Kit

The all new Tek RMD® now comes with an optional outdoor conversion kit. Easily switch between indoor and outdoor modes for maximum mobility.

Introducing the Foldaway

You have the ability to engage with someone of your same age group or peers and be eye to eye. You just can’t replace the element of being on a personal level with somebody. The amount of mental stability it creates for you is greater than having a simple conversation from a wheelchair to a standing person.

The Health Benefits of Standing

Our bodies are meant to stand. Standing at least five times a week improves bone density1, circulation2, bladder and bowel function2, and alleviate pressure points.3 Standing also improves your self esteem and physiological well being4 as well as reduces mortality.5,6

Existing standing frames can be large and limit a user’s ability to navigate indoor environments, often require caregiver assistance, and rarely allow for convenient navigation. The Tek RMD® holds the user in an upright position while leaving their hands and arms free. This allows more freedom and independence to perform daily tasks, while improving health and overall well-being.

Since our team first came together in 2006, our goal has always been to develop technology that will help people – specifically people with walking disabilities. We designed the Tek RMD® to add more freedom to the lives of individuals with walking disabilities, allowing them to live in places not designed for them, and to move more independently in the world.

After years of development, planning, and testing, the Tek RMD is our first product to hit the market. We debuted the Tek RMD in 2015, and with the buzz we received from around the world, we decided to offer it globally. Our goal remains to improve the health, wellness, and sense of independence for as many people as we can reach.
