award 3

Taiwan is a society that has the population ageing situation, we need to focus on the health care of elderly people. One of our targets is to supply the appropriate assistive devices for these users, and help them to live their lives with dignity, and feel comfortable.

A traditional recline wheelchair may cause users to slide unconsciously after seating for certain time, which increases the risk of losing body balance and may rise the pressure on the spine, therefore, a well-design recline wheelchair is not only needed to be comfortable but also needed to be ergonomic.

With delicate calculation and clinical experiences, “Recline 501” has two core concepts, the ergonomic design and fitting to the user. The unique designs are depicted as follow:
1. 3-Dimension Ergonomic Headrest: Provide a better stability for the head and neck and ease the pressure.
2. Removable Flip-back and Height-adjustable Armrest : Offer greater convenience when the user transfer himself to bed, car, seat or sofa.
3. Removable Swing-away Elevating Legrest: The height, angle and depth are adjustable for perfect support.

With other features such as:
-The footrest’s angle is rotatable, adds convenience when the user transfers in tight areas.
-Advanced gas spring and cylinder provide energy to assist the operation of reclining.
-Boat-shaped armpad provides comfortable rest and offers better hand movements during propelling.
-Supply seat upholstery and pads treated with the AEGIS microbe shield to reduce stains and odor.

Above all, “Recline 501” is an ergonomic, multi-functions product and it’s really easy to use, with affordable price. Just like we promised:
“Enrich every physically-challenged human life”.

A rainy day encounter in 1987 changed the life of Kenny Chen, Karma’s founder. One rainy day in Taipei, Kenny noticed a woman struggling to fit her father’s wheelchair into the trunk of her car. The wheelchair was heavy- difficult even for a strong man like him to lift. Kenny couldn’t forget the despair of this woman, soaked in the rain and being splashed by noisy passing traffic, or the weight and the clumsiness of her father’s wheelchair. " Couldn’t wheelchairs be better?"
