Abstract:

The project mainly aims to design and fabricate a carriage for armless people for the easy transportation from place to place, also outdoors. The project focuses for the use of crippled people (Both armless as well as disabled). The cost efficiency of the design makes it affordable for the common man. The drive is provided by an electric motor. A rechargeable battery is used for the power supply. It uses track chain instead of traditional wheels, thereby enabling it to pass through different terrains as well as ability to climb stairs. The use of track chain also enables it to rotate 360º in standstill position. The controls can be operated either by using hands or by using legs, thereby enabling it to be used for people with different disabilities. The product in application will be economic and can be used in several cases where normal transportations are difficult.
