What is Kartus ?
Kartus is more than just a Guinness Record holder wheelchair : it is an inclusion creator, a seclusion breaker, a community builder, and most of all, a well-being and happiness dynamo.
Kartus is a Social Movement.
We believe everyone deserves beautiful and quality products. Kartus is not your typical wheelchair; it is an elegant and high-performance product that gives back freedom, dignity, and joy to all its users.
How do we fulfill our mission ?
Meet the team
I founded Kartus with the profound desire to make a positive contribution to our society. My team and I hope to bring joy and happinness to our customers and users. Each smile that our product can bring means the world to us.
I hope to help the emergence of a large community which promotes the social inclusion of people with disabilities, that enables seniors and others to get back outdoors in a dynamic setting, and, more importantly, I hope our product helps creating new, unforgetable, bonds through a meaningful activity.
Meet the team
Growing up with a brother who had down syndrome and a father who was running daily, I cannot begin to imagine the good that would have come from having this running chair in my family.
First off all, my brother Leo was not outdoor enough. Secondly, my father would have had enjoyed more meaningful moments with my brother. Moreover, my mother could have had some much-deserved rest.
When Philip showed me this incredible project and the specialized wheelchair he had built, I immediately saw the immense potential for the happiness and well-being of seniors and people living with a disability. I wanted in, and I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. That's why I decided to take the opportunity and join the team.
And also : a community
Running, a passion that can be shared!
Several racing clubs allow young and old to experience the joy of running in duo with a Kartus running chair. The communities founding Shared Run Clubs are our best ambassadors. We are proud to count among some of the runners and co-runners of the running clubs, Guinness record holders. The movement is rapidly spreading. The Shared Runs first came to life in Sherbrooke, then Quebec City, Gatineau, St-Jean-sur-Richelieu and soon enough Montréal, Lévis, Boucherville and many more.
