Sound Wheelchair: 車椅子楽器プロジェクト



For wheelchair’s beginners, it is a task that the traditional practice of wheelchair’s training is tedious and the promotion of beginner’s motivation is a challenge. In addition, for a healthy person, there are few places to experience wheelchair sports with disabled people and the consciousness to wheelchair and wheelchair sports is poor. In this research, we hope that we can develop an interactive system that works with the movement of wheelchair and create a place that can be experienced. Therefore, we developed the “Wheelchair Instrument”. The “Sound Wheelchair” can converts the color of colorful training course to sound with color indicator which is attached to wheelchair. The colorful training course made from coated paper which can be easily designed and the color indicator can be easily attached to any wheelchair. We are trying to support wheelchair’s beginners to receive a better training while using “Sound Wheelchair”.
