Dignity / wheelchair and bed

Dignity
Dignity

This is a wheelchair can be combined with bed for the handicapped people with injured legs to avoid the hard and dangerous movement between wheelchair and bed.By using the common wheelchair, it is still hard and high risk when moving between wheelchair and bed, even the patient has nurse assistance. Observing this user group, especially the long-term handicapped people, the movement between wheelchair and bed is occurred frequently in daily life.Therefore, this design can help the handicapped people to forsake the process of changing the body’s center of gravity under the considered scenario. In other words, on a wheelchair is like on a bed.
