CUSTOM ADAPTATION -- PURPOSE: To provide a customized lifting chair for an individual with mobility disabilities that can be easily moved throughout a residential setting, including going through doorways. The chair has a U-shaped base made of rectangular hollow steel with a vertical post at the back, and large casters on the front ends of the U and smaller ones at the back. There are also larger bike-type wheels on either side which can be used to propel the chair if necessary. Additionally, there are handlebars at the back of the chair that can be used to push the chair when required. The seat frame is made of steel tube and has a plywood base padded with foam and covered with vinyl. The seat is raised and lowered using an electrolinear actuator powered by a rechargeable battery and housed in a steel box mounted to the rear of the vertical post. The chair is equipped with a braking system which holds the chair completely still during transfers onto it on the ground, or on or off at a raised level. The raising and lowering mechanism and the brakes are operated by using toggle switches which are mounted in a small hand-piece on a length of cable so that it can be reached from the ground or in the chair. POWER: Uses a 12-volt rechargeable battery. DIMENSIONS: The lifting chair travels no more than 150 millimeter (mm) off the ground to a standing height of 680 mm. TITLE: Chair Raising.
