Recent Project: Patient Car-Simulator

A fascinating project was recently completed in Victoria!

A group of Solve-TAD Volunteers worked for 3 months to create a Car Transfer Simulator.
This car, made for the local Repatriation Hospital, is to help patients after surgery practice transferring to and from a car before they go home.
By practicing on this simulator, patients will be much safer when discharging from hospital and returning home.
A special request was also made – if the car height could be adjustable to reflect the height of the car the patient would use post-discharge.

And what a result!
Volunteers made this simulator by buying a car from a wreckers, cutting it in 1/4 and then working on the interior design.
The final design operates the same way that a hospital bed does – using a hand-held remote to either lift or drop the height of the car.
Solve-TAD Engineer Hassan helped with the project, and was over the moon with the results!
“We would like to thank our volunteers for their time and expertise on this project” An amazing team and a great success!”
