Control Bionics’ ALS Association-funded work introduces DROVE to the USA. DROVE is an autonomous driving wheelchair module created to give users the ability to independently navigate in their home. With a variety of access methods, users can select a pre-defined destination on an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) system, removing the need for the user to physically navigate tight corridors and doorways at home.

At Control Bionics, we’re not just creating assistive devices; we’re shaping a future where ALS doesn’t hinder living fully. Together, we will continue to champion resilience and empowerment in the face of adversity.
