Designing a Wheelchair by Applying Ergonomic Aspects

For hospitals, providing wheelchairs has become an obligation as a facility for their patients. And it can be ascertained, all hospitals have used and provided wheelchairs because of their various benefits.

One of the benefits of a wheelchair is to help patients who have difficulty moving in order to carry out their daily activities. Other benefits are certainly felt for those who have an accident or disability in their legs.

Therefore, wheelchair products for these patients must comply with the Ergonomic Aspects (comfortable in using a wheelchair), so that the wheelchair product can satisfy its users.

In order for wheelchair products to be maximized in terms of use and comfort, every product development that is made must consider aspects related to ergonomics.

One of the aspects related to ergonomics is to carry out anthropometric measurements on the dimensions of the human body.

What is Anthropometric Measurement?

In general, anthropometry is a study that is closely related to measuring the dimensions of the human body. And anthropometry itself is a part of ergonomics which is specialized in studying body size.

Body dimensions used in anthropometric measurements include :

  1. Height in a sitting position;
  2. Elbow height in a sitting position;
  3. The distance from the knees to the buttocks;
  4. Knee-folding height; and
  5. Shoulder width.

By taking measurements in the dimensions above, the wheelchair that will be used can meet the ergonomic aspects which will be very comfortable to use by its users.
