Summary


Our team in ME105: Engineering for Freedom from Disability designed a hands free power wheelchair charger as an assistive technology for power wheelchair users without full use of their upper body. Since many power wheelchair users require an assistant to help them with their daily activities, simplifying or automating certain actions allows users more freedom. Power wheelchair charging was identified by the group as an action that was relatively simple to modify in such a fashion. By developing a station and adapter kit, power wheelchair users were able to plug their chair in on their own, frequently on their first attempt using the device.
