the Disabled and the Elderly
Technology changes the world, improving the quality of healthy people’s life, as well as those people of disability and old age. Those devices are already engineered to change their life:
A stairlift is a mechanical device for lifting people up and down stairs with a wide variety of features such as adjustable seat height, battery isolation switches, call stations, 'flip-up' rail, key switch, folding step, speed governor, seatbelt, soft start and soft stop.
Popular types: Straight-rail stairlift, Curved-rail stairlift, Wheelchair platform stairlift, Outdoor stairlift,
Pre-owned stairlift, Goods stairlift, etc.

It is a bath safety mobility device which the user sits on to get into a bathtub. The user usually sits on the bench, which straddles the side of the tub, and gradually slides from the outside to the inside of the tub.
Popular types: Non-Sliding, Sliding or Rolling Transfer Benches, etc.
Walk-in bathtubs have either an inward-opening or cap-like fitted door, descending to near ground level to allow a person to enter the tub without climbing over its side and the door is self-sealing without the risk of leaking. Most walk-in bathtubs also have a chair-height seat, but some, which are the same basic configuration as a standard bathtub, do not have any seat. Walk-in tubs take up a similar amount of space in a bathroom as a traditional bathtub. This allows for a quicker installation and simpler alignment of the water drains. There are also smaller walk-in tubs that offer front and side entry for a less-than-standard space.
A mobility scooter is a mobility aid equivalent to a wheelchair but configured like a motor scooter, which is often referred to as a power-operated vehicle/scooter or electric scooter as well. Sweetrich is a Hi-Tech company with six years’ experience of producing and R&D of mobility scooters. Different types of products are available to meet different users of diverse needs. For example, lightweight mobility scooter, heavy duty mobility scooter.
A mobility aid is a device designed to assist walking or otherwise improve the mobility of people with a mobility impairment.
There are various walking aids which can help people with impaired ability to walk and wheelchairs or mobility scooters for more severe disability or longer journeys which would otherwise be undertaken on foot. For people who are blind or visually impaired the white cane and guide dog have a long history of use. Other aids can help with mobility or transfer within a building or where there are changes of level.
A motorized wheelchair, powerchair, electric wheelchair or electric-powered wheelchair (EPW) is a wheelchair that is propelled by means of an electric motor rather than manual power. Motorized wheelchairs are useful for those unable to propel a manual wheelchair or who may need to use a wheelchair for distances or over terrain which would be fatiguing in a manual wheelchair. They may also be used not just by people with 'traditional' mobility impairments, but also by people with cardiovascular and fatigue-based conditions.
