New Device for Paraplegic Transportation

I like it! Do you? 🙂

“One of the main problems of any wheelchair is that, it can only be front-mounted. This is a problem because wherever a person is sitting, like a couch, bed, toilet seat or a chair, his front side is always free and his body is always resting on his back. For this reason paraplegic people have to lift their body with their arms and throw themselves onto their wheelchairs in order to transfer their body from a bed or a chair. This motion of throwing the body is difficult, dangerous, and almost impossible to do without assistance, especially for older and/or overweight people. On the other hand Tek Robotic Mobilization Device can be pulled easily by the user and the user can mount onto the device securely from its back. Mounting and dismounting the device can be done successfully in a much safer way since the user is doing so while in a seated position.”
