AbleChair takes mobility to a new level

Arduino TeamMarch 27th, 2019

The AbleChair by Advanced Fitness Components is nominally a wheelchair, but it’s capable of so much more. 

The versatile wheelchair’s enhanced abilities include elevating the user to standing height or lowering for easy transfers. Additionally, the seating assembly can be flattened and positioned parallel to the ground, and even vertically as needed. This vertical position allows it to act as a gait training aid for those that are learning to walk, and the variety of positions has a number of health benefits.

The system itself is powered by Arduino along with brushless motors and sensors, while a joystick, touchscreen, and an Android app are used for control. 

Be sure to check it out in the video below, or see more info on its Kickstarter page here.
