WHEELCHAIR PROJECT -
DESIGN ON HOW A WHEELCHAIR CAN ACTIVATE MUSLES
Design for the dignity and gaging.
This a short project began with an insight in muscle loss lost “After 48 hours without activating a muscular, the muscle begins two fadeaway”. This is something that affects elderly a lot. After a period of illness, there are many elderly who has had so little activity that they are no longer able to walk, and therefore often end up in a wheelchair. when they end up in a wheelchair just keeps muscle wastage when the wheelchair is not challenging musculature.
This wheelchair activates muskalaturen and allows for a more dynamic sitting position, through removing traditional support in some areas and add support in some. The adde support helps so user dare challenge the somewhat crouched position that traditional wheelchairs force you to have.
The chair also opens up for an easier entry and exit, as well as the possibility fror wheeling the entire chair into the shower, where whater drains of. The chairs expressions shall appear more like a classy gear other than an aid, in order to get away from the stigmatizing term traditional wheelchairs have.
