Sitting Up in Bike

Leo Mitchell

The Need

The goal of the ‘Sitting Up in Bed Project Team is to develop a specialized solution to allow the client in Switzerland to go from a side laying position to a vertical sitting position. This will hopefully enable the client to transfer from their bed to a wheelchair without the need of a PCA. The client is currently renting furniture and an apartment, so the design of the device needs to be as minimally intrusive to their environment as possible.

The Solution

he goal of the ‘Sitting Up in Bed Project Team is to develop a specialized solution to allow the client in Switzerland to go from a side lying position to an upright sitting position at the edge of the bed. This will allow the client to transfer from her bed to the wheelchair without the need of a PCA. The client is currently renting furniture and an apartment, so the design of the device needs to be as minimally intrusive to her environment as possible." How will be accomplished: "We have developed a free-standing lift device that is customized to fit her bedroom environment. The client will lay on the platform of the device, which rests on her bed. The platform rotates from 0-90 degrees via a linear actuator and allows the client to go from side lying in bed to sitting up at the edge of the bed, where she can then transfer to her wheelchair independently.
