The Disabled Helper / wheel chair

The Disabled Helper
The Disabled Helper

The disabled patients usually spend some time to rehabilitate. However, the common wheel chairs make them lazy, which is weighted against the recovery. We design ‘The disabled helper’ to solve the problem. The disabled helper meets the demands of independent rehabilitation with the function of walker by the rotation of seat and the stretch of armrest. The disabled can move easier and choose the exercise more independent compared with the common wheel chairs. It seems that the integrated design of wheel chair and walker is contradictory while it contributes to the independent rehabilitation of the disabled patients.
