"Public wheelchair" offers a functional and versatile solution for crowded hospital waiting areas. The combination of rental wheelchairs and waiting room seats will fit the need of the patients and provide better space utilization in hospitals.
This "public wheelchair" is easy to collapse. Once the handlebars are pull up, the wheelchair can be pulled back into a wheelchair. To close it, turn the pedal around and push it forward. It can also be used as a more comfortable waiting chair when the wheelchair is not used.
As a result of the wheelchairs parking on the aisle, the waiting areas in the hospital are always crowded. I turned the wheelchairs into one of the objects that can be packed away, optimizing the spaces and improving the patient's experience in the waiting area.
The waiting areas in the hospital are always crowded, especially for the wheelchairs on the aisle. Turn the wheelchairs into one of the objects that can be packed away, optimizing such spaces and improving the patient's experience in the waiting area.
The form of the wheelchair started with bend aluminum tube chairs in order to be functional and easy for production. During the CMF design process, I use soft elements like orange leather to make this hospital furniture more user-friendly.
The structure is based on the handrim-drive wheelchair, designing for the users whose height between 150cm and 180cm.
