From Walker to Wheel Chair: A Mobility Aid Combination
Division:Health Sciences / Automotive
City:Fort Kent, AB
School:Bonnyville Centralized High School
Abstract:In this project I invented an inexpensive device that can be attached to most styles of 3-4 wheeled rollators (walkers with wheels, a seat, and a backrest) and gives the rollator the capability of acting as a mobility rehabilitation tool, or a convenient electric wheelchair. My findings show that a device like this would solve problems facing many walker, rollator, and electric wheelchair patients.
