Escalator Compatible Wheel Chair

Escalator Compatible Wheel Chair

People who use Wheel Chairs, always face difficulty using escalators. Students at Illinois Institute of technology find the solution to this problem by designing this chair in a different way. Wheel Chair developed by them can be used at escalators.

Building wheelchair requires good design, it should be robust and lightweight. There is very little scope of error because it is going to be used on escalators where even a minor mistake puts its rider at risk. In the video given below, you can see how a student of Illinois University has implemented this project successfully.

How it works?
It is designed in such a way that when it is used on escalators it becomes immovable and stable. For that purpose, it has support in the front which gets grounded when required.
