The Story of Mègane and the Birth of the Magix6
Mègane had an accident at the age of three that left her paralyzed. Mègane's family used to spend time on the ski hill and as long as she was small there was no problem to pull her around on a sled. When Mègane grew, this was no longer possible. Mègane could not navigate the ski hill along with many other challenging environments. Mègane's dad, Mr. Ohruh, found this unacceptable. Mr. Ohruh promised to create a suitable wheelchair.
The six wheel Magix6 was born. Based in Betschdorf, France, Magix6 gives the user a very capable outdoor ride and a zero turning radius that makes it very capable inside.
In 2013 Now Technologies founder Marton had to move to a temporary accommodation near the Rehabilitation Center for Physically Disabled People in Budapest, Hungary. His path frequently crossed with people living there.
He was shocked to see so many people with high-level spine injuries rolling the streets with bulky, cumbersome and visibly uncomfortable solutions such as chin joysticks and pointer sticks. As an inventor and tech enthusiast, he found it unacceptable that disabled patients don’t have access to today’s technologies, and are depending on such industrial, mechanic equipment.
He built the first prototype of our proportional headset almost overnight and after showing it to the leaders of the center, they not only gave Marton their feedback, but also a space in the institution’s workshop and provided wheelchairs for further development.

As the shape is modified, the remaining air is removed and the cushion is locked into a shape that supports the user's bodily contours. This provides less interface pressure.
BodyMap® cushions are available as seating supports, back supports, head supports, arm supports, foot supports, lying support mattresses, supportive chairs, water therapy supports and therapy rollers
