Abstract

The purpose of this project is identify the problems that encountered by elderlies during transferring from or into a wheelchair besides, to improve the design of the existing wheelchair that will reduce physical fatigue and enhance independence or ability among elderly. This project is only focus to improve the design of manual wheelchair. There are several method that use to counter the problem that user faced while using the wheelchair especially during transferring process. Case study had performed at at Rumah Seri Kenangan, Cheng, Melaka to identify the problems that occur while using manual wheelchair among elderly. Based on the case study result that had analyse, the idea on how to redesign the wheelchair is come out through conceptual design process. The main criteria is to develop new design of wheelchair that can ease transferring process which consist of features such as adjustable seat height and fordable armrest. AHP software is used as a method to select the best conceptual design for new wheelchair. This software will calculate the evaluation value based on pairwise scale and select the conceptual design with the highest value as a selected design. Detailed design is develop by using SolidWork software to build the complete design. This project proves that the selected design from this study can facilitate the process of transferring from one place to another such as from wheelchair to bed that consist of different height as well as to increase the ability of the elderly who use it without relying on the help from someone.
