Robotic Movement with a Difference

Robotic Movement with a Difference

ITRI MediRobot by Pilotfish is a robotic assistant that can lift and transfer patients with limited mobility and assist their caregiver. Traditional lifters have their drawbacks and have to be used in combination with wheelchairs etc. This servo-controlled MediRobot not only helps in transferring the patient from bed to the bathroom (or help in walking) but also displays information like weight and blood pressure collected via sensors on the sling.

Da Lollipop!

Da Lollipop!

I found the original lollipop thermometer to be a good design, but like my doctor pointed out, it may not be a great idea to give children candies when they are unwell. Plus imagine having to take the temperature every hour or so! A perfect redesign is this new version that has the candy feel without being the real thing. Sweet!

Pill Box for Alzheimer Patients

Pill Box for Alzheimer Patients

Memo is a portable Pill box for alzheimer patients to remind them when and how many pills to take, thanks to an ingenious use of LEDs. A light with a specific color indicates the color of the box the patient has to take from. Traditionally, medications are divided up using standard trays separated by days but even some advanced patients have a hard time remember what day it is. Made of soft touch rubber, aluminum, a small circuit board, battery and LED lights. It would only cost $20. Good idea?

XRays To-Go

Inspired by the designer’s own personal experience of waiting too long during a stay at the emergency room, the Radio portable x-ray was imagined as a way to cut back on time spent in the radiology process. The device uses the same dental imaging technology that exists currently and incorporates it into a compact, portable unit that can detect broken bones or other abnormalities. Radiologists can instantly read the screen or print radiographs via from the unit’s charging dock.

Wheelchair for Air Travel

Wheelchair for Air Travel

For those confined to a wheelchair, getting around onboard an aircraft can be quite challenging & usually requires assistance from one of the flight crew. Adding this element to the already frustrating flying experience can discourage users from travlling altogether. This is where the Skycare Chair wins- utilizing wheels placed under the seat rather than at the sides & a hand-operated lever system to move forward or backward. It offers independence when moving to & from the lavatory or from chair to gate.

Wheelchair GT

Wheelchair GT

As you might have guessed by the name, the Ultra Long Distance Wheelchair was designed to extend the thrill of long distance touring to cyclists with disabilities. Inspired by the principles of GT automobiles, the trike was designed with an emphasis on comfort and high speed over straight-out performance, though it’s certainly not lacking. It’s one ultra-stylish ultra-tourer!

The device uses state-of-the-art noise canceling technology, a HEPA air filtration system, and an air particle ioniser to protect babies from loud sounds, germs, and contaminated air particles, ensuring they get a peaceful and healthy sleep.

About the same size as a Mini Cooper and twice as fast, the Megacity Aviation concept was designed to transport goods rapidly through cities with major gridlock. The majority of the biofiber reinforced bioplastic frame is hollow like the bones of a bird, making it incredibly lightweight.
