Electric wheelchair convert to bed
Electric wheelchair users may have independence while they are moving about in the day. However, there is still an aspect of their live which require
external assistance from caregivers, that is the transfer of the wheelchair user from his electric wheelchair to bed at the end of the day.
Most accidents that happened to wheelchair users are caused by the users as a result of trying to move from their electric wheelchairs to their beds.
Users will move their electric wheelchairs by the side of the side of the bed and use their hands to support themselves onto the bed. This is a very
dangerous act as a slip of the hands can cause the user to tumble out of his wheelchair and onto the floor. The consequence will be unthinkable if
there are no family or friends at home to render immediate assistance.
Fortunately, all these unnecessary accidents are a thing of the past with the invention of a new electric wheelchair to bed conversion machine. This is
actually invented by Panasonic, a Japanese company. This state of the art machine actually is an all-in-one facility for the wheelchair users. It brings to
the wheelchair users a new dimension of life and more importantly, electric wheelchair users can relish in their new found independence. This latest
innovative product aims to address the problem of the aging population in Japan where the increased number of people over 60s is putting a strain on
the health care industry. As people age, many lose their ability to walk and have to rely on wheelchairs for the remaining part of their lives. The low
birth rate in Japan compounds the problem as there is a smaller number of people replacing the retired and taking care of their parents. The health
worker to patient ratio is getting higher as a result.
This new robotic bed integrates many human robot technologies that are a hallmark of Japanese innovations. The intuitive controls make the machine
easy to operate for the aged and disabled. No training is required as transformation from electric
