Wheelchair Projects

Wheelchair Manufacturing

This case study details Formeon’s involvement in reverse engineering a wheelchair frame to enhance its design and functionality. They utilised advanced Creaform 3D scanning technology to capture precise measurements of the existing wheelchair frame. They then recreated the frame in CAD software, allowing for modifications to improve performance and user comfort. Through their expertise in reverse engineering, they facilitated the development of innovative wheelchair models that prioritise both functionality and user experience.

Wheelchair Castor forks

The original castor forks were experiencing performance issues, leading to discomfort for wheelchair users. Formeon utilised advanced 3D scanning technology to capture the geometry of the existing forks accurately. Through meticulous analysis and redesign, they enhanced the structural integrity and functionality of the forks, resulting in improved performance and user comfort. The successful outcome demonstrates Formeon’s expertise in reverse engineering and its ability to drive innovation in assistive technology
