Designing a new type of medical care and stand-up wheelchair for people with limited mobility, such as people in rehab, requires the finest coordination of all medical and technical components. In this case, Paravan GmbH succeeded in bringing a study to market maturity within two years. Nold Hydraulik + Pneumatik GmbH and components by ACE Stoßdämpfer helped.
The task to be solved jointly by the team was to regulate the running and acceleration forces of the electric motor in the PR Biolution stand-up wheelchair. In particular, the automated and pre-programmed movement sequences, which are precisely coordinated with the persons treating each patient, had to be as smoothly gliding and thus as pleasant as technically possible.
Even the smallest jerky movements are to be avoided, for example with rehabilitation patients, as they are often particularly sensitive to pain and react sensitively to stretching or compression of joints or muscle parts.
After determining all the design data, the partners then selected industrial gas springs push type for the desired support of the lift motor. In the headquarters in Bad Waldsee, as well as in the Riederich branch of Nold Hydraulik + Pneumatik GmbH, which supports Paravan GmbH not only in this case, the solutions of ACE Stoßdämpfer GmbH are trusted in the area of speed regulation, because their gas springs push and pull type are characterised by high functionality and long service life.
On the other hand, they can be used to achieve customisable strokes and extension forces thanks to the integrated valve technology. Last but not least, just like the PR Biolution medical care and stand-up wheelchair, these components are customised solutions made in Germany.
