Abstract [en]

As is known to all, the aging problem becomes more and more serious in recent years. The issues “get into and out of a chair”, from one of the self-care tasks of aging people named Functional mobility in ADLs (Activity of daily livings), need to be solved carefully in efficient ways to help seniors and patients who have physical problems dealing with their daily life.

In this previous investigation, the existing products in the market are normally quite heavy and importable. After combined with the advantages of the existing products and some improvements in portability and comfort which is related to human engineering. A Pneumatic Cushion for Supporting Standing and Sitting Process, based on airbag and pneumatic system which has been designed in this thesis, can be used by user who has physical-trouble for standing up and sitting down. Meanwhile, after being assembled with some specific extra components, it can be used as a mobility aid device.

For the whole designing process, many relevant article, video sources and websites are referred for the previous researches, including Google Scholar, BTH Digital Library and YouTube. The product was designed and analysed in Inventor 2018 and the fluid dynamic simulation has been done in Abaqus. Studies involved lifting function are selected after the survey about assist appliance and aid appliance market.
