Abstract

To break out of a debilitating cycle caused by his deterioration of his ability, a patient participates in rehabilitation programs and actively rehearses his degraded abilities. A Cycling Wheel Chair (CWC) provides a rehabilitation option for preventing one's legs weakening and/or nervous system atrophy. This paper discusses desired functionalities on the CWC for effectively supporting patients becoming healthier. Various sensors are attached in order to collect data. Application examples of the device are given.
