ezSlide / Wheelchair

ezSlide
ezSlide

Wheelchairs have been essential devices for people who are injured or disabled to transport. Unfortunately ordinary wheelchairs are not friendly for moving from bed to wheelchair or vice versa even to the patients who can fully use their upper body. Also, the cost of many automated devices for that purpose is unacceptable to many people. ezSlide is a low-cost and user-centered wheelchair enabling a patient to transfer to bed without assistance of others. This will not only free caregivers from intense supervision, but also give the patients confidence and self-esteem by being more independent. (http://vimeo.com/8486863)
