CEO & Founder

Kangsters is a pioneering able-tech startup hailing from South Korea. Tyrion Kim, CEO & Founder, presents the company and tells us more about their solutions, especially their smart wheelchair treadmill called Wheely-X that they want to propel on a global scale.

What led to the creation of Kangsters?

Our family members and millions of people around the world suffer from living co-dependently. This strips them of their confidence, hope, and participation in many of the things they care about. This has been an issue throughout human history.

The reality is that the life quality of our loved ones with disabilities has always been last for innovations. Today, while solutions are emerging for life off Earth, our family members still cannot even live confidently and independently. We realized we couldn’t wait for innovation to reach our families during their lifetime. We needed to create it.
