For the initial project description, click on the following link for our assigned Project Readiness Package.
A gear chair is a wheelchair that would give the user the ability to choose between different gear ratios. This could allow someone to go up steep inclines more easily or achieve higher speeds than on a traditional wheelchair. There are currently companies utilizing similar technology, including Magic Wheels and Renegade Wheelchairs.
The goals of this project are to use geared hub technology to improve on the traditional manual wheelchair by providing improved speed & agility, and allowing for easier travel over diverse terrain. The expected end result is a functional prototype which could be reliably manufactured. The resulting design and prototype need to be easily maintained and not lose any functionality when compared to a traditional wheelchair.
