Project FreeWheels

Self-driving wheelchair for freedom

and autonomy

Challenge

Loneliness and dependence are common among people with a mobility problem, such as the elderly and people in a wheelchair. The needs of physically disabled individuals for independence and autonomy have been taken to heart in the co-creation of FreeWheels.

 

Solution

In this project, the first self-propelled wheelchair is developed, which enables users to live (more) independently with more autonomy, more choice, control and confidence in their personal life.

 

Role of the HealthFactory

Alternating groups of students in Electronics, Design and ICT use the R&D facilities, space, expertise and guidance provided by the HealthFactory to carry out their co-makership internship assignment. Residents and carers of WoonMere test FreeWheels.
