The Solution:
This device helps Razi Cohen and others get up and down from their wheelchairs onto another chair. The project is an add-on to the original wheelchair, helping Razi to go on and off his wheelchair in 2 steps. The prototype uses 3-D printing, handles, and a metal structure that remains steady while moving. The add-on is connected to the front of the chair with a small strap. While moving down, the user is supported by the handles and sits on the band. The next step is to lower the body to the floor, and to go up backwards. The participants of this team were from the Israeli Air Force unit, IDF.
