IX / Wheel Chair Transfer System


IX is a transfer device developed for wheelchair bound patients in a hospital enabling caregivers to transfer them from the wheelchair to a different seating more efficiently and effortlessly.
Current transfer devices do not offer both the convenience of an automated solution and the flexibility to be used in various situations which result in it being physically straining for the caregiver to transfer the wheelchair bound patient between different seating.
Hence IX aims to alleviate the physical stress on the caregiver through the incorporation of a pivoting action which shifts the weight of the patient, assisting in the transfer process.
