En Design of Automatic Lifted Skåp för äldre och handikappade (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

There are 18% Swedish who have passed the retirement age of 65 years. This number is projected to rise to 30% by 2030. According to a recent report, seven times more people are admitted to a hospital after falling down than the traffic incidents. Some falling incidents happened because the elderly people step on an unreliable chair in order to take the plates or glass from the upper cabinet, [2]. After conducting a survey, we found that there are 75% elderly people (60-80 years old) who consider that they are not satisfied with the present design of the cabinet. We designed a new device which can make the upper cabinet move automatically. The users can take anything from the upper cabinet conveniently. The device will reduce this type of accident from happening.

Abstract [sv]

Det finns 18% svenska som har passerat pensionsåldern 65 år. Denna siffra förväntas stiga till 30% år 2030. Enligt en färsk rapport, är sju gånger fler människor in på sjukhus efter att ha fallit ner än trafikproblemen. Vissa faller incidenter hände eftersom de äldre kliver på en opålitlig stol för att ta plåtarna eller glas från övre skåpet, [2]. Efter att ha utfört en undersökning, fann vi att det finns 75% äldre (60-80 år) som anser att de inte är nöjda med den nuvarande utformningen av skåpet. Vi konstruerade en ny apparat som kan göra den övre skåpet flyttar automatiskt. Användarna kan ta allt från den övre skåpet bekvämt. Enheten kommer att minska denna typ av olyckor från att hända.
