Ablechair / Wheelchair & Bed


Lying, moving, and defecation are fundamental works for human, not for wheelchair users. It's a terrific task for them that they transfer from a wheelchair to a bed and the opposite.
Ablechair allows those patients to be able to transfer between a wheelchair and a bed by themselves. If the wheelchair is pulled over by the bed, it automatically flattens its body and adjusts level to the bed. Upper body is detached from the lower parts and moves to the middle of the bed along the rails. Ablechair users have more chances of rehabilitation without being helped as they are able to move around by themselves.
