Medical and Nursing Care
As society ages, demand increases for wheelchairs that can serve as transportation devices for the elderly and people physically challenged. THK's products play a part here too.
Wheelchairs with electric lift arms
Supporting a barrier-free society where all people can live in comfort
In recent years, ramps for wheelchair access have become standard at commercial buildings and facilities. However, if the slope is relatively long for a small difference in height, these ramps can be inconvenient for caregivers.
Because this wheelchair has four retractable lift arms in addition to their wheels, it can be used to go up steps directly. THK's Ball Screw Model BTK and Slide Rail FBL are used in the lift arm section.
Smooth, quiet slide devices let the elderly and people physically challenged use our wheelchairs without concerns, and the ability to go up steps directly reduces the burden on caregivers.
