Robotic Care Bed/Wheelchair – a robotic bed that can be transformed into an electric wheelchair. The Robotic Care Bed/ Wheelchair allows elderly to leave the room without any transfer process, thus, to enhance the quality of everyday social life of the elderly.
Manual Tilt-in-space Chair – a chair that fits multi-user environment. The multi-directional backrest and footrest allows flexibility to cater individual user's needs. The removable armrest, 4 swivel castors with brakes and handle at the back of the chair make lifting and transferring elderly easier.
