SS01 Wheelchair Simulation System

Anri Sugihara

Robotics, Automaton and Automation Design SS01 Wheelchair Simulation System by Anri Sugihara SS01 is a measurement system designed and developed to improve sitting especially for person who use wheelchair. The simulator came into the world, driven by the development of WF01TR, a wheelchair for racing. It obtains a wide range of personal data, such as 3D data of the body shape contacting with a seat in a sitting position, the rotating speed and torque of each wheels, and shift in the center of gravity of the subject. It is possible to arrive at a personalized optimum solution by precisely adjusting the positions of a seat, seatback, step, and a camber angle based on the data.
