People with disabilities are isolated and dont have access to the same opportunities as others within their own communities, when the need is not met. Providing wheelchairs that are fit for the purpose not only enhance mobility but begins a process of opening up a world of education, work and social life. The development of rational policies and increased to training opportunities in the design, production and supply of wheelchair are essential. The wheelchair is multifunction, it allows patients to have the freedom they were previously unable to have, as now they can go from a seated position, to flat on the floor, and all the way up to a standing position. They can also turn sideways, on multiple terrains. As the many causes that left them immobile await treatments, this innovation gives them freedom through technology. While it is not the patient themselves doing the walking, they are still experiencing the world as a walking person does. In this project, we are going to continue the design of multifunction wheelchair from other student in order to upgrade it.
