Background

  • Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Study
  • In 2007, approximately 225,702 people suffer
  • from SCI
  • Estimated annual SCI is approximately 12,000
  • new cases each year.
  • Types of Disability & Proportions
  • 34.1% incomplete tetraplegic (weak control
  • over upper & lower body muscles)
  • 23% are complete paraplegic (no control over
  • lower body movement)
  • 18.5% are incomplete paraplegic (weak lower
  • body movement)
slide4

Design Motivation

  • Allow Better Blood Flow Circulation
  • Beneficial for the muscles and blood flow
  • Relieve pressure and stress from buttocks
  • area.
  • Height Control System
  • Allow user to have equal eye level
  • communication.
  • Increase range of height, ease of access to
  • shelf top, switches… etc.
slide5

Our Solution

  • Innovative, Reliable & Cost Effective Device
  • A system that can be retrofitted on to existing
  • power wheelchair designs and be able to
  • transfer an user effortlessly from a sitting to a
  • standing position.
  • Goals
  • Safe and secure transfer for the user
  • Manual button controls for user

5

slide8

Button Controls

  • Tactile switch buttons
  • -Up, Stop, Down, Memory
  • Up
  • -sitting to standing trasistion
  • Down
  • -standing to sitting transistion
  • Stop
  • -stop all transition
  • Memory
  • -memorizes the current position

Tilt Sensor/Accelerometer

  • Bottom of the seat
  • Detects the angle between the frame and the seat.
  • Allows the micro-controller to monitor the position of the seat.

10

slide11

Mechanical Design

  • Linear Actuators

- Controls the bottom and top frame

movement.

  • Light-weight Aluminum Frame

- Allows minimum change to actual

wheelchair.

  • Strong and secure foundation for
  • user.

11

slide12

Trajectory of Motion

  • Final Position

- 70 Degrees incline

- Users have weak joints that

does not allow for max movement

  • Customizable Trajectory

- Movement range changes with the

mounting position/size of the actuators

12

slide13

Safety Components

  • Upper Body Harness/Seat belt
  • -Prevents user from falling forward.

13

slide14

Safety Components

  • Leg Supports
  • - Keeps the leg in place so that the person is kept from sliding forward.
  • - Cushion for knee area support.

14

slide15

Future Development

  • Actuator Control

- Control both actuator at the same time.

- Put a safety function to detect interference of actuator motion.

  • Enhanced Safety, Comfort & Appeal

- Attach higher quality safety harness to improve comfort and safety.

- Improve visual appeal and design of frame and components

  • User Interface

- Sip –n-puff(ideal for quadriplegic people).

  • Customizable

- Customize frame to fit the needs of various body type.

- Use different size actuators to control the trajectory of the frame.

slide16

Project Finances

  • Prototype Production Cost
  • Prototype Funding

Wighton Engineering Development Fund

  • Cover all prototype costs

16

slide17

Actual Costs

  • Product Cost
  • Fabrication costs were a major portion of our project budget. If mass
  • production occurs, partnership can be made with fabrication shop and may
  • be able to lower a large portion of the project costs.
  • Unused Parts
  • Extra and additional parts were sourced in for quick replacement if parts
  • are damaged along the testing phases.

17

slide18

Competition

  • C500vs Series

- High Cost $30,000 - $40,000

- Built as all-in-one unit

- Able to select the features you want

for customization

  • EasyStand Ovation Strap Stand

- No mobility

- Separate unit

- Large and bulky (Robust)

18

slide19

Business Opportunities

  • Possible Usage
  • Assist with standing process for people with weaker leg strength.
  • - Transfer the user to a position suitable for urination
  • Incentives

- Not all disabled people have the same needs.

- Minimize cost by reuse/upgrade existing wheelchair.

- Could become a part of rehabilitation process.

- Allow better blood flow to the legs

- Decrease work load for nurses/doctors to stand a person up.
