PS5.1: Second Generation of a Low-Cost Smart Wheelchair

During ISS 2015 we presented a prototype of a low cost smart-wheelchair designed to help the rehabilitation professional to select the best functional movement and control strategy to use the device, as well as provide people with severe motor disabilities the opportunity to test a power wheelchair. Our second prototype keeps the features of the previous and extend the use of the device in terms of ergonomics and safety positioning
