The history of Qimova

Outstanding seating and posture support to suit individual needs and requirements

Not two people are the same. Why should wheelchairs be? That, and a commitment to the possibilities of making technology to actually produce solutions to the problems we’re facing, was what led Henrik Grauslund to found Qimova in 2006.

As a technologist Henrik knew only all to well, at technology alone doesn’t help you much. If you don’t know and truly understand  the problems you want to solve, you’ll never find the right solutions. And knowing and understanding is something you can only do by engaging with the people you want to help. Talking to them. Reading and listening. Understanding how sitting in a wheelchair affects the human body.

The respect for science and people alike is still a defining mark of Qimova today. No alone are Qimovas chairs technially ourstanding. The process of getting a Qimova chair is also a deeply human affair where the representatives of Qimova takes their time and gives their knowledge to ensure your chair really fits you.

Today Qimova produces and sells chairs to markets around the world. But Qimova still strives to make the world better by inventing. An ambition you see in the Qimova- led PUMA-project, a cross european research initiative to make the intelligent wheelchair, funded by the EU.
