E-assistant / Cart


E-assistant is a cart that helps elderly people in rural China to clean, transport and sell fruits and vegetables more easily. It aims to reduce the income inequality gap between the rural elderly and other groups and help the elderly work more conveniently.
E-assistant turns the cart into a mobile selling stall. The higher working surface reduces the number of times the old people bend down to operate, and the design of large wheels + small wheels makes it easier to go over the obstacles, and it can quickly switch between the cart and the stall to improve the working efficiency.
