・All it takes is just one helper:Our product guarantees easy operation and easy transfer, allowing a single helper to move the care-receiver from the bed to the wheelchair.
・No stress on the helper: The caregiver will not feel any physical stress while transferring the care-receiver thanks to the power-assisted robot arms that do much of lifting. The aid robot also uses a sling seat that gives a stable support all through a lifting action regardless of the bodily features of the care-receiver.
・Great posture control for next action:Our aid robot provides posture support for the care-receiver to help him/her get ready for whatever action he/she is up to after the transfer. It also controls pelvic inclination, which is helpful for the care-receiver to be seated in a proper posture.
・Smooth ride:Our aid robot promises gentle, smooth transfer so that the care-receiver can just sit and relax at every ride. Our unique servo technology realizes a smooth up-and-down action and tilt rotation. The structure is so sturdy and stable that it does not wobble even when the care-receiver makes some movement during a transfer, thus giving him/her no physical or mental stress.
・Easy operation: Touch sensors on the top and bottom part of the arms allow the user to rotate the robot arms. Intuitive operation makes the caregiver feel as if he/she held and helped the person up or down for real. Even not-so-mechanical people can operate the machine with no sweat and no fear.
・Our aid robot has all kinds of safety measures: the Enable button, touch sensors, the emergency stop button, the alarm LED, the circuit with a redundancy system, self-monitoring for system failure (WDT), etc.
