Thai innovations ease life of people with disabilities
Physical disabilities and illness make people suffer with difficulties in many aspects of the daily life. The constraints arise from physical disabilities cause people to feel discouraged and despair which affect the quality of life and eventually become a societal burden. Assisting people with limitations to help themselves seems to be a good solution for them to live their lives appropriately with value and self-esteem intact.
That has inspired several Thai innovations designed to adjust the environment to suit various activities to make lives of people with disabilities better and happier.
Wheelchair with standing function
allows the disabled or patients who are unable to walk to stand up and help themselves including performing physical therapy. This special wheelchair is lightweight, easy to move around and cheaper than the imported ones.
is a dental chair designed especially for people with disabilities. It deals with difficulties, risks of injury and accident, in transferring patients with disabilities from a wheelchair to a dental chair. This invention allows people with disabilities to push their wheelchairs onto the dental chair safely and conveniently.
The brain signal-based communication aid
makes it easier for patients who cannot speak or move to communicate with doctors. This electronic device uses brain signal processing techniques with the technology of creating ready-made software to make a communication aid for patients incapable of speaking to 'talk' with their doctor by their brain signals.
These products are only a part of Thai innovations which cater to various aspects of better living in the fields of health, safety, environment, connectivity, lifestyle, career and happiness creations. They are proud works which are worth discovering.
