A device designed to be attached to wheelchairs, for disabled
people, whether manual or electric. We have come up with the idea, after having fully analysed an
electric wheelchair, where we saw that it could still be improved. For example, adding a flashlight to
see in the dark, a bell that sounds louder, adding the function of asking for help by issuing a voice
message system that will alert people around the wheelchair user. This is thanks to a speaker placed
at the back of the wheelchair that will be connected by a cable to the device and finally, the device
will have an integrated GPS tracker that will allow to their beloved ones and families to know the
location of the wheelchair user. Mainly, the device has 3 functions. All components work thanks to
rechargeable batteries that will be connected to the device, that means it is completely independent
of the wheelchair. To finish our device will have some straps that will allow any wheelchair user to
put that on any side arm handles.
Global Challenge 10: Reduced Inequalities
Too much of the world’s wealth is held by a very small group of people. This often leads to financial and social discrimination. In order for us to rise with our device, equality and prosperity must be available to everyone. Reducing inequalities and ensuring no one is left behind are integral to achieving the sustainable development goals.
Global Challenge 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
for our device to be cheap on the market, we have used recycled items for our device to be made.
Global Challenge 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
It plays a key role in introducing and promoting new technologies, facilitating international trade and enabling the efficient use of the resource. It helps to develop quality, reliable, sustainable and resilient device, include regional and transborder infrastructure, to support economic development and human well-being, with a focus on affordable and equitable access for all.
Global Challenge 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
It helps to promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all. It gives the wheelchair users more options to work at different where one person needs to work independent.
Global Challenge 5: Gender Equality
In terms of gender of a person with the disability, research has suggested that women with disabilities are viewed more negatively than men with disabilities. This device focus on both the Gender and can be used by both equally with no discrimination.
Global Challenge 4: Quality Education
It gives the students independence, especially for the University as students are more independent with the help of the device and they don’t need a helper. It helps the disable people to improve the quality of education both physically and mentally.
