Wheelchair Bathtub / Healthcare Design

Wheelchair Bathtub
Wheelchair Bathtub

The idea of the ‘Wheel Chair-Tub’ was inspired by the traditional home service bath car. From our observation of the disable person, we found out that application schedule of traditional bath car was too
complicated and energy consuming. Therefore, we decide the design target toward ‘wheel chair-tub’ in order to reach the following purpose:
1. Reduce the consumption of human power to carry disability person.
2. Reduce the complicated assembling procedure.
3. Increase the security of transferring process.
4. Easier to operation.
Carer can easily and safely take care of the disability person by using ‘wheelchair-tub’.
