About the project:
Portable Lift for Persons with Mobility Disabilities
For people who are quadriplegic, simple tasks become incredibly challenging in every day life. Hospitals have pre installed machines in specialty rooms to safely lift patients from their chair to a bed. However, if they wish to travel or go to a hotel, they may not have accommodation to do so. These machines are extremely expensive, heavy, and impossible to travel with.
We are currently designing a novel and simple machine that can fit into a check-in bag and can be easily assembled by a single person.
