DESIGN NAME:
Infinity

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multifunctional Walker

INSPIRATION:
Mobility is a basic human need to perform daily tasks and to have a meaningful social life. On the other hand, limited mobility is associated with higher rates of depression, social isolation, and obesity. This is clear that human abilities decrease over time and one's dependence on aiding devices increases. Infinity walk-chair designed to cover the needs of people with various levels of disability and to offer them an additional option as they became weaker.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
While using conventional walking aids requires holding and pushing the device, Infinity walk-chair is developed to carries the user and ease normal walking speed. The product is designed especially for people who are not as much disabled to use a wheelchair but have difficulty in walking for long distances even by using walking aids. Infinity walk-chair gives them the choice to use the product as an electric rollator or wheelchair and encourages them to walk and be active as long as possible. This option would lead them to improve their abilities and their social life.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Infinity walking aid is operated by a simple touch sensor on the right handgrip that resolves the need for hand brakes and powerful gripping. To activate the electric motors and start walking, the user just needs to touch the sensor and hold the handgrip. The product is equipped with a foldable seat that converts the product to a motorized wheelchair. By unfolding the seat, the product operation mode will be changed and touch buttons became deactivated. In this case, the wheelchair’s movement can be controlled by a simple joystick mounted on the left handgrip.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in October 2018 and finished by the end of February 2019 in Tehran, Iran.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The product is equipped with two electric hub motors, making this possible for the user to adjust the desired walking speed and easily walk even downhill or uphill. The wheels are locked by electromagnetic brakes and just roll with electric power, not the user push or gravity force. However, for the emergency situation, a free-wheel lever is provided. This special design, ease normal walking speed and eliminate the risk of accidental slips and injuries due to dizziness or weakness.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 600 mm x Depth 620 mm x Height 850 - 950 mm

TAGS:
Walker, Rollator, Walking aid, Disability, Limited mobility, Safety
