Wheelchair is really a great invent for disabled people and help them a lot in the daily life. And with the development of technology, wheelchair is not only a simple transportation tools now, The engineers have added many new functions to it and make it more lightweight, intelligent and comfortable. Then, how to make a wheelchair more light? The main method is to use some special materials, and carbon fiber is the best one of them .
When it comes to carbon fiber wheelchair, we should know what is carbon fiber first. Carbon fibers are fibers about 5 to 10 micrometers (0.00020–0.00039 in) in diameter and composed mostly of carbon atoms.Carbon fibers have several advantages: high stiffness, high tensile strength, high strength to weight ratio, high chemical resistance, high-temperature tolerance, and low thermal expansion. These properties have made carbon fiber very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, motorsports, and other competition sports. So, it is a brilliant material to make lightweight wheelchair.And compared with common wheelchair, carbon fiber wheelchair has many unique advantages.
For a same size wheelchair, carbon fiber frame is 1/3 lighter than aluminum alloy one. No matter the carbon fiber manual wheelchair or the carbon fiber electric wheelchair, both of them can make people feel more relaxing.
A complete wheelchair is made with many different parts, once there is a malfunctioning part, the whole wheelchair will not work normally. Carbon fiber is a low density material with a very high strength, and has superior fatigue properties compared to metal, meaning components made of carbon fiber won’t wear out as quickly under the stress of constant use.
Many wheelchair users may experience the problem of incontinence. Carbon fiber is one of the most corrosion-resistant materials available.
The purpose of patients using wheelchairs is to protect themselves and avoid secondary injuries. The carbon fiber wheelchair has a certain shock absorption effect, and the comfort and safety are better when going up and down the stairs and steps.
