Story

We are building an economical, electric, voice-controlled wheelchair for patients with Motor Disabilities
They will also be equipped with:
A. Vital sign reader which could take appropriate actions automatically (like warning sounds or calling someone who could take proper medical initiative) if the vital signs show abrupt behaviors as in the case of seizures, losing consciousness, cardiac arrest, High/low BP, low blood oxygen level, etc.  
B. Proximity sensor which will warn the user about the forthcoming obstacle and stop the wheelchair if the user couldn't react on time.
After that, we will be working on integrating the Wheelchair system with
C. A crude map of the inside of an organisation or institution such as school, colleges, hospitals, courts, governments buildings, corporate offices, etc which would help them to navigate inside the premise/campus/building without the need of giving commands again and again (It will function much like a driverless car working solely on GPS). The wheelchair will prove fruitful for patients suffering from:
  1. Traumatic Injuries
    1. Spinal cord injury
    2. Loss or damage of limb(s)
  2. Diseases and Congenital Conditions
    1. Cerebral palsy
    2. Muscular dystrophy
    3. Multiple sclerosis
    4. Spina bifida
    5. ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease)
    6. Arthritis
    7. Parkinson's disease
    8. Essential tremor
