The Omeo

Designed and built with the best safety and the most unique features of any self-balancing personal transportation device.

The powerful two-wheeled self-balancing platform means you travel over uneven terrain, scale inclines and navigate troughs, while always remaining level in your seat – giving you access to places such as beaches, forests, tracks and pathways that would be impossible for most other personal mobility devices.

It comes in a standard set up that fits through standard doorways and will take you most places, but by changing to the additional Off-Road Kit, you can go almost anywhere – tackling soft sand, gravel, and rough terrains and inclines with minimal impact on the flora and delicate surfaces.

It is smaller, lighter and faster than most other powered mobility devices.

Omeo in Action

Check out the innovative features of the Omeo!

You can operate the Omeo using a choice of two riding modes that are activated by a single lever.

Omeo joystick

Joystick Mode

The forward and back movement is controlled by shifting your body weight forward and back. You use the Joystick then to move left and right. This is really unobtrusive and really great for manoeuvring in tight spaces.

Active seat control

Active Seat Control (ASC) Mode

The forward and back movement is the same as in Joystick mode, but now that the seat is unlocked, you can control the direction by shifting your weight to the left or right. It is easiest to start by holding onto the handgrips until you get used to how your body can move the machine. With practice, you can go completely hands-free.

We have also thought of…

  • Dual electrical systems to avoid mishaps and provide alerts (e.g. empty battery levels)
  • Individual self-leveling Stabilising Legs – controlled electronically and provide a stable platform for transferring (even on a slope and rough terrain)
  • Able to turn on its own axis which means you can manoeuvre in small areas such as public transport and in stores*
  • No bulky, dangerous steering column, making transferring on and off easy
  • Built-in front and rear LED light and reflectors
  • Hi-density polyethylene body – making it easy to clean, impact resistant and durable
  • A seat which “outperforms other seats on a number of levels”

… and did we mention there is also!

  • Storage compartment
  • Customisable seat and footplate heights
  • The ability to have Joystick and other controls positioned on the left or right side of the body
  • Foldaway Footplate with a choice of height adjustments
  • Adjustable seat positioning
  • USB charging port for phones
  • Multi-functional holder for accessories (e.g. holders for cups, fishing rods, umbrellas, trays smartphones and tablets)
  • Four tie-down points for transportation
  • Available in 5 colours; green, orange, purple, blue and black
  • Weather resistant but not submersible

And we continue to innovate – let us know your thoughts (Amphibious is out of scope though!)

*Note: you need to check the accessibility laws of the area you intend to use the Omeo. Some jurisdictions do not permit use in municipalities, pedestrian areas, malls and stores, and/or have speed restrictions.

Off-Road Kit

The popular add-on kit that allows you to take your Omeo just about anywhere. The Off-Road Kit includes Wheel guards (fenders) and All-Terrain wheels that are suitable for all outdoor use and a wide range of environments. The wide flared guards (fenders) and bigger tyres will increase the overall width of the Omeo (to 850mm/33 inches) meaning that it will not go through standard doorways.

Because the tyres have no crown and operate at low pressure, they provide a great feeling of suspension, a smooth ride and great traction including on soft sand, gravel and dirt. The turf style tread of the All-Terrain tyres means the Omeo Off-Road configuration is gentle on delicate surfaces (particularly in a straight line), such as lawns, golf courses and other fragile flora.

The Seat

The most defining feature of the Omeo is the patented Active Seat Control system.

The Active Seat Control (ASC) system is a unique control interface from person to machine in which you control the direction, speed and braking through body movements. You are not only getting a physical workout when using the ASC, but your mind is constantly being engaged with the need to control and be aware of your body in space. Just like what happens when you are walking!

The intuitiveness of the Omeo’s ASC gives you body language – improving the quality of conversations and it also makes moving within a crowd easy. Add the agility, precise movement and accuracy of the Omeo and it often feels like you have lateral movement.

The combination of the seat pan, seat positions, backrest and cushions makes for the ultimate support, comfort and control. Feedback from leading seating specialists say “they wouldn’t change a thing”.

  • The curved seat pan captures the legs – providing support for control
  • Adjustable positioning and height at 4 screw point in the Seat Pan
  • Great results from pressure mapping tests
  • The overall design is supportive and comfortable for a wide range of body types
  • Core features of sitting a wide range of people upright
  • Self-levelling in the act of breaking, going down hills and through dips – so you never feel as if you are going to fall out the front
  • Get a great core workout – whatever muscles you have are being used with the freedom of movement

Cushion and cover

  • Cushion filling is hi-tech foam and is removable/replaceable
  • Vinyl seat cover which is removable and easy to wash
  • An accessory option of a rubberised breathable compound cover. This compound
    does not get so hot but is more apt to ‘stick’.

Speed Restrictions

One of the key attractions is that the Omeo will travel up to 20kph/12mph.
Some areas do have restrictions. It is your responsibility to check and adhere to the rules and regulations in the area you are riding your Omeo.

Weight Restrictions

The recommended maximum weight is 110kg. There is no warranty for users over 110kg.

The recommended minimum weight is 40kg.

Safety Measures

Here at Adapt Ability Ltd, we are big on safety!

Although the Omeo has the best safety and backup features of any self-balancing device, we think it’s really important that we are there at the start to give you training and that you feel confident on your Omeo before venturing out in public.

We do recommend that you wear a safety helmet as well as any other protection you think you will need when riding.

You should always use the Omeo responsibly, within your limits and always be mindful of the safety of others. For example, to travel at a pedestrian pace when among pedestrians.

The Omeo has dual system backups to avoid mishaps and provide alerts (e.g. battery levels), as well as in built-in safety features that won’t leave you stranded. This is all outlined in the User Materials provided with your Omeo.

At Adapt Ability Ltd, we cannot accept responsibility for your safety if the Omeo is used irresponsibly or for anything other than its purpose.

Security Features

Here at Adapt Ability Ltd, we are big on security!

The Omeo can only be powered on with the remote control. So as long as you have the controller with you, NO ONE can get on your Omeo and drive away with it. The Controller also has a security lock function that, when activated, will trigger an alarm if anyone tries to move your Omeo.
