For instance, makers are focusing on unveiling smart wheelchairs that are functional in crowded places, increasing the mobility scope for patients. Growing affordability of personal mobility aids is also boosting the wheelchairs market.
Growing array of multidisciplinary studies that aims at assessing the potential of the use of smart powered wheelchairs has expanded the scope for innovations in the wheelchairs market. Several of such studies highlight the importance of users’ input and their caregivers’ feedback. These studies, among other aspects, take care of physical impairments that can hinder the optimal use of these intelligent wheelchairs. Manufacturers have also put recurrent focus on the safety aspect and integrating technologies to that end. A case in point is pneumatically-powered waterproof powered system in the wheelchairs market.
