Caddy Moon

giancarlo2Diapositiva14CADDY MOON

Caddy Moon comes from the effective human need of giving support to people with disabilities and their families. CADDY MOON is an innovative powered wheelchair addressed to people with temporary or permanent disabilities, affected by mobility impairment or obesity (it is able to bear till 135 kg of weight).  It is meant to help both users and their caregivers, facilitating patient handling activities. CADDY MOON is a cutting-edge device combining in itself both lift and mobility systems, to let users move conveniently and independently, also arising their self-confidence. This kind of device for assisted living is made up of a carbon fiber body, high-precision mechanical components and special sensors that detect and measure a number of physical or biological parameters and then transmit and report this data by network. Caddy Moon is thought to be completely washable and has a limited footprint area (like a common wheelchair).

DESCRIZIONE DEL BREVETTO/ABSTRACT:

(EN) The present invention concerns a wheelchair (1) having a frame (2) and a seat (3) arranged on the frame (2). In accordance with the invention, the seat (3) is detachable from the frame (2) so that it can be separated from it. In such a manner, with an appropriate lifting device (21, 40; 240) it is possible to lift the patient while he remains comfortably seated. In particular, the lifting device is mounted in a sliding manner with respect to the frame (2) and is activated by means of activation means (22, 23, 25). The lifting device (21, 40; 240) further comprises a support element (50) that connects rigidly the lifting device (21, 40; 240) to the seat (3) so that, as a consequence of a sliding of the lifting device with respect to the frame, the seat is lifted/lowered from/towards the frame itself through the support element (50).

(FR) La présente invention concerne une chaise roulante (1) ayant un cadre (2) et un siège (3) agencé sur le cadre (2). Selon l’invention, le siège (3) est détachable du cadre (2) de sorte qu’il peut en être séparé. De cette manière, avec un dispositif de levage adapté (21, 40 ; 240) il est possible de soulever le patient qui reste confortablement assis. Le dispositif de levage est notamment monté de manière coulissante relativement au cadre (2) et est activé grâce à un moyen d’activation (22, 23, 25). Le dispositif de levage (21, 40 ; 240) comprend en outre un élément de support (50) qui connecte rigidement le dispositif de levage (21, 40 ; 240) au siège (3) de sorte que, en conséquence d’un coulissement du dispositif de levage relativement au cadre, le siège est soulevé du cadre lui-même, ou abaissé en direction de celui-ci, par l’élément de support (50).
