Easily and safely, transports the patient on the bed, car, toilet, etc.
The seat, adjustable in height and thickness, rotates with the backrest and becomes parallel to the direction of the bed or the car seat.
It allows you to place its feet under the transfer table and to superimpose its seat on the bed, car or toilet.
It has a beautiful design with features that simplify its use and make it more comfortable.
PhD Ing. Fabrizio Granieri e Pasquale Fusiello
Since he is two years old he has been playing with real DIY tools, repairing the toys that break.
From eight,nine years old, he uses all the pocket money or asks Santa for just DIY tools.
Over the years, his propensity has led him to modify and improve these toys, for example by replacing the motor of the cars for the Polistil track with which he plays with friends (winning all the races thanks to the changes made), optimizing the brushes of contacts with the track and by adjusting and lubricating the gears for transmission, lightening the cars and adding weights (Bolts) to better balance them until a front-wheel drive machine is made using the denture resin supplied by a dental technician. Among the many other modifications that it makes to toys, for example, it transforms the sister's Barbie bathtub into a motor boat, using the engine derived from the water pump of a car's wipers.
Around the age of 11, acquiring more and more practical experience, a reversible battery screwdriver is built using the motor of a windshield wiper.
Eager to learn everything about the world of motors, mechanics and electronics, he attended workshops and laboratories, "stealing" the profession with his eyes.
It also deals with the maintenance of small changes on bicycles, scooters and cars
He graduated as an IT expert.
Since 1999 he teaches computer science lab in Secondary Secondary Schools.
In 2003 he graduated in Mechanical Engineering at the Polytechnic University of the Marches, and loved to define a "Mechanical Engineer" ever since.
In 2010 he obtained a PhD in mechanical design and biomechanics at the Polytechnic of Bari, specializing in structural optimization of finished elements, acquiring moreover skills in the field of carbon fiber elements also used for aeronautical use.
In 2018 he participates in Maker Faire with the multi-purpose wheelchair and Carica !!!
In 2019 he is selected and participates in the 40-hour training course at CERN in Geneva.
He lives as a maker when this term did not yet exist.
Acquires knowledge in mechatronics when this term did not exist.
He also designs and manufactures machinery: tower cranes, wheel washers for lorries, extensions for boring machines, dental implants, etc ...
Today with the development of new technologies, it uses the 3D printer and Arduino very well to speed up the production of prototypes that, in the past, made with any material available but with longer times.
He filed 6 patent applications at the UIBM for three of which, including the multipurpose wheelchair, has obtained the patent, while the other are being examined. He also deposited a PCT for Carica!!!.
