With promising growths in the global wheelchair market, developers respond by improving the dynamics of assistive devices through using artificial intelligence, sensors and a GPS to bring users to their destinations. These technologies will improve the efficiencies of wheelchairs affecting 2.2 million people who use them for daily tasks and mobility (National Institutes of Health). Every year, 2 million new wheelchair users can also benefit from improvements on these devices that not only enhance the mobility of users who are physically challenged but also increase comfort and convenience. From manual to automated wheelchairs, these devices improve the quality of lives of people by letting them do more things safely and comfortably.
Disability affects millions of Americans preventing or restricting them from moving or going to places. It affects their ability to live independently that, in turn, impacts mental health and social relationships. Fortunately, assistive devices such as the wheelchair are available for the people with disabilities regardless of causes (accidents, illnesses, genetics or aging). Wheelchairs may be bought as manual or powered depending on the degree of the disability and budgets. Present-day wheelchairs have already significant features that enhance the mobility of users. For example, all-terrain wheelchairs are available that allow users to enjoy the outdoors. Gone are the days when people in wheelchairs are confined indoors or on paved surfaces. Now, you can get that breath of fresh air, fish or hunt in an all-terrain wheelchair.
Robotics and artificial intelligence are also part of advances in wheelchair technology. By using AI, sensors, cameras and a GPS, developers are designing a wheelchair that can bring you to places. Researchers at Japan’s Kurume Institute of Technology are making an electric wheelchair that uses voice recognition to take the user to its intended destination. Using AI, it avoids obstructions (people and objects) as it moves. You just need to speak to a smartphone or a device on the wheelchair, tell the destination and the wheelchair maneuvers itself to reach the place where you want to go. A GPS-fitted wheelchair is also trackable pretty much in the same way that you locate a lost or stolen bike. The future of the wheelchair industry looks promising as technology advances help people with physical challenges improve their mobility and as a result, achieve a better quality of life. As for safety, wheelchairs are not categorized as motor vehicles and can be legally operated only on sidewalks, pathways and allowed to cross the street as pedestrians. Better access points for wheelchair users on public roads should be part of a wider measure to improve their safety.
