Abstract
This paper’s objective aids in bridging the gap between the dreams of a common man to the reality. “Stand on Wheels” is an aid for the bedridden ones, mainly for those who are paralyzed down from hip. It is mainly a custom standing wheelchair which is made affordable to all sectors of society. We are lending our hands to those bedridden people who want to stand. With our technology, we have brought the cost of such existing wheelchairs down. We aimed to design a new electrical system in wheelchairs to help people stand up safely without much effort, simpler in structure, less power consuming and more economic. The standing wheelchair designed will help the people with disability to surge self-esteem, reach objects placed high, deliver speech on podium or even to start a firm on his own. It also reduces the diseases like Osteoporosis and related issues. This project is being made to bring a person back to his feet in real life.
