About the project

The robotic wheelchair/bed is designed to transform directly into a wheelchair, without the need for any manual lifting. It is best for the “extremely frail” elders. It allows for the wheelchair to lie flat can minimize the risk of accident during transfer from wheelchair to bed for both elders and care workers, significantly increasing care efficiency and allowing frail elders to “stay out of bed” and have some interactions with people or nature, enhancing their quality of living.

The Project will install 62 Robotic wheelchair/beds in 21 subsidised elderly homes.


Quantitative and qualitative data will be collected to examine the effectiveness, receptiveness and satisfaction of users/ family members and care staff.  Data on occupational safety and social participation will be gauged.


  • Improve quality of life of the frail elders
  • Improve health care efficiency of care workers
  • Enhance occupational safety and prevent injury for care workers
  • Preserve dignity and self-esteem of elders
