Assistive Technologies

We are developing technologies to aid the elderly and those with disabilities to live more independent lives.

We are soon introducing SpastoPro, an automated neurorehab device for stroke patients with upper limb spasticity.

An indoor mobility device, GoSolo, that aids the elderly to seamlessly transfer, move and stand-up.

Patents for these two devices have been filed.

Agricultural Technologies

Agriculture is a key focus area for us. We look forward to develop technologies and provide consulting services to address challenges in Food Security, Livelihood Generation, and Sustainability.

Recently, we have collaborated with SRISTI in India and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology in Kenya to make available low cost tractors to Kenyan farmers. The Shujaa has been tailored for Kenyan conditions. We are in the look out for like-minded partners in other African countries to commercialize Shujaa or develop other appropriate technologies for local challenges.

Shujaa is a 12 hp tractor developed in collaboration with SRISTI  and Microenterprises in Amreli and Una with inputs from Kenyan agricultural experts.

It is suitable to needs to the needs of smallholder farmers in Kenya and other countries with similar soils.
