En multifunktions Walker för att bistå äldre Mobility (Swedish)
The walker is regarded as a promising solution to provide additional support to maintain balance or stability while walking for elderly people. Significant assistance in improving mobility technology have been observed from literature review. However, the walkers available in the market is possible to optimize in design and include additional functionality, including getting out of the seat at home with caregiver aid, emergency care aided system. Considering falling down is a public healthcare problem, we designed the emergency aided system to rescue them .
In this paper, we proposed a multiple function elderly mobility and emergency aid system, was developed and modelled by Inventor 2015, and finite element analysis. Simulation was then created to get the value of safety factor, and make comparison base on the results from structural calculation. Finally, the application of few features of the improved walker was illustrated.
