---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To develop a prototype robotic wheelchair which allows individuals with mobility disabilities and wheelchair users greater independence and the capacity to traverse any terrain and situation. Developed as semester project at the University of Applied Arts in the Studio Industrial Design 2 Esslinger (www.creativednaaustria.com). The CARRIER wheelchair’s frame is specifically shaped to maneuver over a commode and adapted with a “trap door” allowing the user to use the toilet in a dignified manner; thus removing the need for awkward transfers or assisted lifts. Additionally, stairs and inclines are easier to traverse with the assistance of a “Galileo Wheel” which combines a wheel and track into a single drive with advantages from both—allowing the chair to entire chair to lift enabling the user to reach higher objects.
