Hospital Transport Chair

Hospital Transport Chair - Designed for the high volume of patients in a Mega Hospital setting, 'Levo' best addresses the need for conspicuous storage and intuitive usage.

Research proved that collapsible transport chairs were difficult for the uninitiated to open or close and are often left in one or the other state. By horizontally stacking the chairs, space saving is increased by a third and the chairs are always ready to use.

Also, by removing the traditional mechanical adjustments such as the collapsible footrests and replacing them with a single foot platform, 'Levo' becomes a safer and more intuitive experience. The platform serves as both a leg lifter and a brake, thus eliminating the need for unnecessary bending. This benefits the patient and the attendant pushing the chair.

This was my 3rd year thesis project.
