Wheelchair and stretcher are very commonly used in the hospitals, airports, railway station, shopping malls, etc. This design here, is a modified wheel chair cum stretcher depending on the needs. This machine can be used to convert the wheel chair into a stretcher according the requirements. This can be accessed manually. The chair gets converted into a stretcher when the levers are engaged. The stretchers can be detached from the main frame according to the convenience of the patient as well the doctors, making it easier to access the patient with less effort and transporting. The folding mechanism makes it easier to store large number of stretcher put into the form of chairs in comparatively less space. The number of patients in world is increasing day by day. So in hospitals patients need to be shifted from wheelchair to stretcher, stretcher to beds, bed to wheelchair, or vice versa; which creates unsafe conditions for patients. There is a need for a Wheelchair cum stretcher to facilitate the disabled patient’s mobility and to provide novel medical equipment for use in the hospitals.
