Wheelchair Simulator


This simulator was selected and listed on iCreate 2022. 

It is one of our founders' very first projects with the Community Rehabilitation Service Support Centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where they developed a VR and computer-based simulation for powered wheelchairs. The application was specifically designed to educate and train individuals with disabilities on how to manoeuvre a powered wheelchair in a confined area. Users could choose to use a VR headset or 3-split screen monitors to interact with the simulation.

The simulation was designed to be controlled using a RNET function powered wheelchair joystick control, and it was capable of recording tracking, collision, and timing information. Therapists and practitioners were able to provide instructions based on the statistics and evidence gathered from the simulation.
