Here’s another update for our end product!
We finalised our idea to be the upgraded and affordable wheelchair. The wheelchair will be able to turn into a walker by lifting up its seat and handlebars. We decided on this idea as it targets the physical needs of the elderly. This can help to make travelling more convenient and cheap as there is no longer a need to buy both a walker and a wheelchair.
We intend for our prototype to be a miniature one as building a life sized one would be too expensive and time-consuming. We dismantled the parts of a small chair using screwdrivers and are using glue guns to change it accordingly
this is a picture to help visualise our product. The lines in black symbolise the handles of the wheelchair. The lines in yellow represent the handles of the wheelchair being pushed up to become handles of the walker. The lines in white are the legs.
