INNOVATION OF THE YEAR PRIZE BAGGED BY EFOLDI
September 23, 2021
eFOLDi, home to the world’s lightest folding mobility scooter and power chair, has successfully secured this year’s Naidex Innovation of the Year award for its new Lite folding travel scooter.
Europe’s most established event for the disability, independent living and health sectors, the Naidex Awards look at products and services that significantly improve people’s lives and reward the best of the best.
Launched mid-pandemic in the summer of 2020, the Lite is eFOLDi’s most advanced scooter. Weighing just 17kg, it folds and unfolds in just a few seconds and is simple to store and transport, easily fitting into a car boot for day-to-day use, family days out or holidays.
The award follows eFOLDi’s initial success with its original model, which won the prestigious British Invention of The Year award in 2016.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be recognised as leading innovators in the sector and it is a huge honour for our team,” says Sumi Wang, CEO at eFOLDi. “We spent over three years developing the new Lite product, and we continue to innovate by focusing our R&D on new product designs as well as the latest lithium battery technology, similar to what is used by some of the leading brands in the electric car industry.”
Sarah Smart, managing director of Griffin Media Solutions comments:
“It was wonderful to hear of eFOLDi’s latest success and to be part of its journey. eFOLDi’s award demonstrates that despite the constraints of a pandemic, companies that think outside the box and push innovative products forwards with well-constructed advertising campaigns – that can evolve in line with rapidly changing market conditions – have everything to gain.”
