Who can use SHABBATTO?
SHABBATO is approved to use during Shabbat by the Zomet Institute (Israel). Rabbi Menachem Perl, Head of The Zomet Institute says: “Amongst all the mobility scooters we are currently familiar with for Shabbat observers this product is Halachically the best we trust this product. Any person with limited mobility that prevents him from walking more than a few steps and strives to attend Synagogue or a social gathering on Shabbat can use this product with peace of mind!”
How it works?
The ATTO SPORT user can easily – and without the use of tools – install the Shabbat remote control on the scooter’s handlebar and activate the remote control before Shabbat. This action turns the SHABBATTO engine on, but lets it operate in “crawl” mode throughout the Shabbat, consuming minimum power. This halachic principle is known as “continuous current modification”. According to this principle, instead of turning the engine on in order to drive, the user is only adjusting the level of an existing current to move and modify speed. The fact that the engine is turned on prior to Shabbat, and operates continuously in the background, is a breakthrough that makes the SHABBATTO more halachically enhanced and sets it apart from the other Shabbat-approved scooters in the market. Once Shabbat enters, the user can use the Shabbat remote control installed on the handlebar to operate the scooter, without fearing desecration of Shabbat. To use SHABBATTO on Shabbat, all you have to do is attach the remote control to the scooter and operate before Shabbat. The remote control is easily attached to the tiller using a flexible strap. Then simply connect the USB cable to the suitable socket just below the handlebar. To turn on, simply flip the Gramma switch.
