PROJECT: Active Wheelchair

Wheelchair : :

About the project:
The active wheelchair promotes blood circulation of the legs.

The Problem:
People who are wheelchair bound suffer from lack of blood circulation and pressure sores.

The Solution:
This is a designed solution that helps individuals like Liron to lessen the pressure on his legs through movement. This prototype works on an Arduino computer and a small motor enabling the legs on the pedals to move and release the pressure from them. This solution is easily added to a standard wheelchair and runs on regular electricity. This project, created again with the help of the Israeli Air Force Industries, is the winner of The ROI Community Prize for Collaborative Competition
