This product presents the design of a useful multi-functional adjustable table. It will bring great convenience to people with disability who spend most of time in bed, so as to meet their daily needs.
Since there are already many similar products on the market, we focused on updating the functions on table, which can help people reading books or using tablet PC on beds in a comfortable way. It can also support people to stand up and walk around. There is a C-clamp fixing the product consolidated to bed. Besides, the hydraulic and micro-computer systems are used to adjust the table into a proper height automatically.
The whole structure was designed in Autodesk Inventor 2015, and the simulation, test, analysis experiments were made in Abaqus 6.1.2 to ensure its safety and stability.
In addition, this design can be an incentive for the improvement of the auxiliary equipment, highlighting the importance of the development of mechanisms for the healthcare.
