Abstract:
    It is automated wheelchair to bed conversion project which is being done to provide a comfortable solution to patients and it is based on a ball screw mechanism for conversion of chair into bed.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Because there is a lot of trouble encountered while shifting patients from chair to bed in hospitals so our automated wheel chair will allow the patients to stay at one place and move their chair and convert it into a bed whenever they need with just a push of a button and a joystick to move it.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   it will be required in hospitals and in houses and at every place where is patient with disability of movement. many patients in the hospital will be benefited from our project. it will be cheap as compared to other commercial automated chairs and it will attract a lot of people.
How will the solution works
    our wheel chair converting mechanism is based on ball screw technology with four bar linkage system that will provide a smooth conversion process of chair to bed conversion moreover it can be operated with battery and motor system and also manual operation is also incorporated in case of technical fault or some other issue related to battery or motor. the user can move it through a joystick and can give direction as necessary it will be converted into a chair or bed vice versa with just a button
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    our main competitors are all those commercial manufacturers of automated wheel chair specially Toshiba, pride mobility,etc.these companies provide a chair that is very good and comfortable but their prices are very high as compared to the market of pakistan we will make it cheaper with same quality.
