Abstract

Wheelchairs have proven to be great assistive products for people with one or more medical issues including, injury, disability, disease or weakness. However, wheelchair users face great difficulty in navigating through manual doors. Several robotic arms have been developed to operate manual door knobs, but not popularly used. Here, we propose simple design(s) of wheelchair accessory for pushing doors. Other potential applications of the accessory would include, use as protection for diabetic foot patients, use with scooters and walkers for elderly and physically challenged people, use with stretchers, etc.
