Title
(EN) TRACKED WHEELCHAIR APPARATUS AND ASSOCIATED METHODS
(FR) FAUTEUIL ROULANT CHENILLÉ ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract
(EN)
Wheelchair undercarriage attachments (10) of the present invention can include a ramp assembly (20) having at least one ramp (22) for allowing entrance of a wheelchair (12) and support thereof during use. A pair of continuous tracks (42) can be oriented in a substantially parallel relationship and operatively connected to the ramp assembly (20). A drive mechanism (70) can be operatively connected to the pair of tracks (42). The drive mechanism (70) can include a hand crank (92) oriented in an accessible position during use and configured to transfer forces to the pair of tracks (42) to cause motion. Such devices can allow for improved mobility of an attached wheelchair over a variety of terrains such as snow, sand, mud, etc.
(FR)
Des fixations de train de roulement de fauteuil roulant (10) de l'invention comportent un ensemble rampe (20) doté d'au moins une rampe (22) permettant l'entrée d'un fauteuil roulant (12) et le support de celui-ci pendant l'utilisation. Une paire de pistes continues (42) peut être orientée dans une relation sensiblement parallèle et opérationnellement reliée à l'ensemble rampe (20). Un mécanisme d'actionnement (70) peut être opérationnellement relié à la paire de pistes (42). Ce mécanisme d'actionnement (70) comprend une fissure à main (92) orientée dans une position accessible pendant l'utilisation et configurée de manière à transmettre des forces à la paire de pistes (42) de manière à provoquer un mouvement. Ces dispositifs permettent une meilleure mobilité d'un fauteuil roulant fixé sur différents types de terrains tels que des terrains de neige, de sable, de boue, etc.
