Robotic Healthcare

The CARRIER is an advanced wheelchair for handicapped and temporary disabled people. It has multiple features, that make it more usable than a regular wheelchair and gives the user a chance to spend the day as usually as without a wheelchair.

A big problem for handicapped people is the toilet, thats why the CARRIER is able to go directly over standard toilets and open the seat, so the user doesn’t have to get off the wheelchair. To go over stairs it uses the special ‘Galileo Wheel’ that combines the handling advantages of an ordinary wheel and climbing ability of a track drive. The last function to allow a maximum of freedom is the upstanding position mode, which gives the user the chance to reach higher objects, or talk to standing people on the same eye level. In addition the backrest can be folded away and the height is adjustable for easier seat change.
