Home Chare is a chair for home care, which reduces the quantity of needed aids and simplifies home care. It combines wheelchair, bed and patient lifter to one product and eases the problematic patient transfer. The Home Chare enables three different adjustment positions lying, sitting and standing.
The modular construction consists of seat-module and transport-module, which are joined by an asymmetric connector. The transport-module is replaceable and is customized as a wheelchair or for indoor use. The seat-module can be joined to a stair-lift or car. The seat adjustment occurs through electro-active polymers.
