Abstract:-Traditional manual wheelchair having chain mechanism which required more efforts to drive the tricycle and control of both arms for operation. To avoid this problem this projects was carried out. In this project we use single slider mechanism instead of chain mechanism. Our goal is to provide comfort and less effort for operation of tricycle. A large verity of mobility vehicles are available in market, form which one is to be selected as per requirements. Mobility vehicles are designed based on the usage, i.e. either indoor or outdoor. The cost of vehicle may not be affordable for a disabled people. So the focus is laid on the simplicity in design, high performance, easy maintenance & safety at very reasonable price. This paper provides detail of component used & designing parameters takes in consideration while designing the tricycle. This tricycle is very efficiently designed and can be proved as a better replacement for the tricycle having chain mechanism. Keeping in mind the factors such as safety, cost & performance this tricycle is design.
Index Terms:-Mobility, single slider mechanism, wheel chair.
