Abstract:
    Automated Wheelchair and Convertible to Stretcher. The idea is to have a machine that is capable of behaving as a conventional electronic wheelchair and transferring the patient to a bed .
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Disabled persons have difficulty in doing day to day tasks. This device will help patients to get out of bed and do everyday tasks w/o relying on any external help. And when they feel like having a good sleep, they can transfer themselves back to their beds and be comfortable.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Pakistan has an estimated 3.28 million disabled persons. Even a small percentage of these people who require wheelchair means that there is a lot of demand .The helpers inside old homes/hospitals will also benefit as they will be free from the hectic work of transferring patients.
How will the solution works
    Wheelchair will be propelled by motors. It will have all the functionality of electronic wheelchair available in the market like joystick control, battery charging etc. We will then modify the structure so that its back and legs can be straightened out with help of actuators. Finally we will transfer the patient from wheelchair(stretcher) to bed by raising the wheelchair to the height of the bed and the patient rolled over. It will also have features like obstacle avoidance and Internet of thing
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Electronic wheelchair are already available in the market. Even wheelchair to stretcher converter s have been developed. Our is different because the combination of these two has not been implemented. Furthermore, the transferring mechanism is a completely new feature .
