Moving Life Atto


It is hard to believe how a mobility scooter can turn into an encapsulated trolley, the size you would take with you on an airplane. The Atto is a scooter that not only folds but one which magically transform into a trolley. The designers and engineers had to practically invent the wheel in order to make this dream come true. Please click here to watch an amazing video about the ATTO foldable scooter.

No compromise in Comfort and Safety
‘Atto’ is a scooter designed especially for physically challenged people. When unfolded, ‘Atto”s wide footprint (56cm/22” between rear wheels) gives the driver a comfortable and safe driving experience. Moving Life does this without compromising the small size achieved when folded. Users can effortlessly set any of the smart mechanisms for a perfect fit, including the adjustable user interface tilt, adjustable seat height and folding arm rests. Foot rest surface is flat for easy mounting, angled for comfort driving and covered with a special material to prevent slipping, all to create an obstacle-free environment.

Invisible? Well, almost!
Where did that scooter disappear to? When folded, the scooter becomes an innocent piece of luggage that no one imagines can turn in seconds into a full sized, stable, safe, and comfortable mobility scooter. This is a unique attribute ‘Transfolding’ as it folds like magic while at the same time transforms into something else. You choose whether to ride it or roll it effortlessly along with you!

Superb Engineering
‘Atto’ was built from over 200 uniquely designed parts, implementing multiple disciplines and best of breed technologies. What makes this product so special and attractive is the fact that each of its parts and mechanisms, visible or hidden, was designed to provide functionality that never existed in other products. This kind of approach is only possible to implement when a company sets the highest standards as its goal.

Go shopping… or anywhere
‘Atto’ introduces a large space under the seat for carrying shopping bags, or whatever you need to move from one point to another. It was designed focusing on users’ daily life needs. The trick was to implement these needs into a modern Transfolding vehicle that can go with you anywhere you want.


When it comes to folding, Atto is the most compact mobility scooter in the world. Nevertheless, when open and ready to drive, Atto is the largest and most comfortable in its category.

Although Atto’s seat is thin and stylish, it was designed to provide comfort and safety and can be adjusted according to the user’s preferences. The seat mechanism can be locked at one of three fixed heights, ranging from 560 to 610 mm (22 to 24 inches) from the ground.

Atto’s minimum ground clearance is as follows:
Metric 10 cm
Imperial 4″

Atto uses a powerful, yet compact advanced-technology lightweight 48 Volts lithium-ion battery. Weighing only 2 kg (4.4 lbs), the battery allows for more than 16 km (10 miles) of continuous driving while requiring only 4 hours (on average) to fully charge. As for charging options, you can charge Atto on-board and off-board, meaning that you can, but do not have to, take the battery off the vehicle in order to charge it. Removing the battery is as easy as pressing a button. Reinstalling the battery is as easy as putting it back in place.

While most countries allow a maximum speed of 6-7 km/h (about 4 mph), Atto can go up to 10 km/h (about 6 mph) depending on local regulations. Once the maximum speed has been set by a technician, it is very easy to set your current maximum speed with one of the presets by simply clicking a button and receiving feedback from Atto’s clear view display.

To allow smooth and continues drive over many years and large distances, Moving Life has developed a unique fully custom brushless permanent magnet DC motor combining solid core and powerful gear along with robust braking mechanism. Via sophisticated software algorithms the motor unitizes modern reverse charging techniques for deceleration and stopping providing smooth driving experience.

Atto’s charger is a small yet smart and powerful charger with the ability to connect to any electrical grid rating 110VAC – 240VAC.

Atto’s front and rear halves can be easily separated in only a few seconds by operating a knob and two handles. The same technique applies to putting the two halves back together. This is very useful when storing Atto in the trunk or in an airplane’s overhead bins.

One of the most common questions people ask is how much time it takes to fold and unfold Atto. Moving Life tested this question and got the following results: It takes less time to fold (or unfold) Atto then it takes to read this paragraph! Only 12 seconds are required as shown in the following video .

There are three mechanisms that can be adjusted to provide maximum customization of the tiller. These include (a) the handlebar height; (b) the steering rod angle; and (c) the handlebar angle. These three adjustments combined ensure the user’s comfort and safety.

Preliminary tests show a minimum height of 150 cm (5 Feet) is required for safe driving. This is NOT a formal recommendation, we have not concluded the tests, and you should check with your medical advisor.

Atto was designed and tested according to strict water resistance standard IP54 requiring the equipment to be water splashed from multiple angles, for a long period of time and at high pressure. After taking a 50 litters shower Atto continued to work with zero malfunctions which guarantees resistance to normal outdoor conditions. Nevertheless, we recommend storing Atto indoor to ensure maximal lifetime of high performance and for safety reasons use it only under dry weather conditions.

There are many accessories a user can add to Atto and we will discuss these in the future. At this time we will mention the ability to charge your mobile phone directly from the handlebar when it is mounted on a designated, easy-to-use smartphone holder.

Atto’s prototypes are already flying all over the world with their users, and in 95 percent of the flights, it flew in the passengers cabin and was stored either in the overhead compartment or in the crew’s closet.
