CUSTOM ADAPTATIONPURPOSE: To enable an individual with multiple sclerosis and severe footdrop to use a wheelchair without assistance. The woman is unable to lift her feet up to conventional footrests. A pair of powered footrests were designed and fabricated using automobile power window motors and switches. The footrests detach when not needed and
can be mounted on the wheelchair while the user is seated in it. Both footrests lower to ground level, enabling the user to slide her feet on or off. Pushing the buttons raises each to more than three inches above ground level to clear sidewalk bumps, curbs, ramps, etc. TITLE: The Powered Wheelchair Footrests.
