Abstract

This paper presents the design verification of a novel concept wheelchair using SimMechanics toolboxes. A wheelchair-sized bed concept (patent pending) with 3 modes of ability (sitting-lying-standing) is proposed. Design begins by deciding the actuator and the component integrated in reality. The 3D wheelchair model was done in AutoCAD 3D and in Vrealm builder to connect with simulink. All components like joint, frame, actuator, gear box and any other part of wheelchair was register in SimMechanics. To verify the kinematics model, a joystick input was connected to the model for visual movement and collision verification. Finally from virtual reality simulation and SimMechanics kinematic modeling, the movement and collision can be verified, and also the actuator condition can be reported.
