Israeli teens’ 3D-printed kit motorizes a plain wheelchair

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

A team of about 30 teenage robotics enthusiasts in Ra’anana recently unveiled a 3D-printed kit that transforms a standard $500 wheelchair into the equivalent of a $2,500 electronic wheelchair with enhanced maneuverability and powerful braking.

The add-on doesn’t interfere with the chair’s folding mechanism and is easily removed, so it can be attached to a rented wheelchair that must be returned in its original condition.
