Wheelchairs and stretchers are the most common equipment used for transporting medical patients. Transferring patients from wheelchair to stretcher or bed is always an issue for the medical attendants or nurses. In addition, the risk of another injury to the patient during the process of moving patients from wheelchair to bed will also apply. Understanding the various issues regarding mobility equipment and introducing better design will be an asset to the medical field and helping hand to individuals with disabilities. Transferring patients from wheelchair to bed is a difficult task in the hospital. Which is currently used wheelchairs and stretchers design does not meet the needs of users.
