The concept of the Wheeleo® was born at the CHN William Lennox neurological rehabilitation center for patients combatting neurological disorders such as stroke, head trauma, epilepsy or cognitive-developmental dysfunctions.

After helping numerous patients get back on their feet, physiotherapist Geoffroy Dellicour noticed that there was room for improvement in the rehabilitation process. He created the first prototype of the Wheeleo® with the main objective to support (semi-)paralyzed patients in learning to walk again. The possibility of receiving continuous support while only using one hand was a unique and never-seen-before feature.

It quickly became clear that a walking device like the Wheeleo® also facilitates mobility for other patients by freeing up one hand to do daily activities in a safe, secured way. As other healthcare professionals started to integrate the Wheeleo® into their treatment plans, the demand for the Wheeleo® grew exponentially and Geoffroy decided to iterate on the design and functionality of the Wheeleo®.

The Wheeleo® is the result of an extensive iteration process of combining the benefits of different walking aids into a high-quality, next-generation mobility device that is both functional, safe to use, and elegant looking. Embrace your life, discover the Wheeleo®.
