Personalized customization of wheelchair popularity
Occupants bowed with both hands, pushed the wheels on both sides, and pushed the wheelchair forward and backward, but it could only drive on flat ground and slopes. Once it encountered the stairs, it was nowhere to be seen.-Does the concept of wheelchair still stay in this traditional impression that would be outdated. Now the wheelchairs can be “smart”，They can climb stairs and help people with disabilities stand upright. After installing the special wheels for the power wheels and Porsche sports cars, they can automatically drive at a speed of 6 kilometers per hour, and even receive human brains. As long as the user issues instructions in his mind, the auxiliary equipment fixed on the legs can drive the human body to walk.
In the Life Sunshine Pavilion and the exhibition, upright wheelchairs and stair-climbing wheelchairs are hot spots of concern. After the disabled person is seated in an upright wheelchair, after fixing his legs on the bracket with a tie, slowly raise the cushion and form a straight line with the cushion, the lower limb of the disabled person will slowly change from knee bending to upright, relying on the buttocks and The back cushions and cushions support, you can "stand straight" steadily, can take high objects alone, and can do many things that could not be done in the past. The stair climbing wheelchair has four rear wheels that can slide and retract, two large and two small. When going up and down the stairs, the sliding support, the two large wheels and the two small wheels form two straight lines. Relying on such stable support, the assistant can You can easily push the wheelchair on the steps.
According to Changzhou Zhongjin, the earliest domestic developer of these new products, because the price is around 60,000 to 70,000RMB, the upright wheelchair has only sold more than a dozen in the country in the past two years, but it has been very popular in Japan, and the annual export value There are about billions of yen. Zhongjin predicts that with the economic development, these humanized high-tech wheelchairs will become more and more common, and customized wheelchairs with a price between 10,000 and 50,000RMB will become mainstream.
Robot as "family nanny"
In the last exhibition hall of Life Sunshine Pavilion, the audience can see the future smart life of the disabled in the “Life Sunshine City” on the screen.
In the morning, the robot nanny awakened the high paraplegic owner from his dream, put him on a wheelchair, pushed the barrier-free toilet to use the toilet, wash, then brought milk and breakfast, and fed spoonful into the host ’s mouth to help the host Change the clothes, and then send the owner downstairs to go out. After getting in the car for the disabled, the owner directs the vehicle with his eyes. On the lawn by the road, several other disabled people were having a picnic, and a blind man was walking on the trail under the guidance of a guide dog. After the owner went out, the robot returned to the house to clean and take care of housework, preparing dinner, while the owner drove to the office building, got out of the car and got into the wheelchair, and entered the office through the barrier-free elevator.
