Smooth

The action or movement of moving the patients onto the bed will give burden to the body of caregivers. The burden, for example, are pains in the shoulders, arms, waist, even in the backbone. In order to solve this problem, we use wheelchair with track attached to the bed to reduce the pain from caregivers. When the patient is on the wheelchair, adjust the back of the wheelchair to let the patient lie down, and then push the cushion, the track design will move the patient to the bed.
