Young Georgian inventor’s wheelchair might change the life of PWDs
Young Georgian student Karlo Khutsishvili, the winner of Millennium Innovations Award competition and the author of a number of inventions such as Multiclimatizator and Life Saver, created an innovative and multifunctional wheelchair named Nonstop. The project aims to help persons with disabilities and improve their lives. In order to find out more about the 18-year-old student’s yet another invention, Georgian Journal contacted him:

“I have been concerned about the issues relating to PWD and I wanted to invent such kind
of tool that would make their lives easier and more joyful. I have had close relationship with persons with disabilities and had some friends who struggled with these problems. When I got acquainted with Nino Abelashvili who has similar problems, I introduced my invention to her and we started thinking about how to improve and perfect the device together. We met PWDs, learned about their problems and demands, in order to assemble the wheelchair in accordance with their requirements”, - Karlo Khutsishvili told Georgian Journal.

“Our project is quite innovative and versatile. It incorporates many functions. A special structure can be attached to the wheelchair that makes it faster and adjustable to the environment. In comparison with traditional electric wheelchairs (38kg), our invention weighs 10 kg less. Relocation of the wheelchair does not pose a problem either, since the core construction can be folded and diminished to 25 centimeters. The wheelchair can also be reduced and it’s easy to transport. Our invention also tackled the problem of work duration. In contrast to other similar appliances our wheelchair can operate for 4 hours nonstop. In addition, when passing one kilometer the chair automatically recharges and is capable to pass extra half kilometer. It can move with the speed of 50-70 km/h. Moreover, the wheelchair is also intended for people who cannot move their wrist. In order to fix this problem, we designed a special glove that will assist the user to drive the electric chair independently. Thanks to the nonstop glove, users can move their chair by simply directing their hand. Besides, the glove includes special sensors through which the user can play computer games wirelessly as well as engage in other activities”, - Author of the project explained.

“The nonstop chair also meets the needs of visually impaired persons and people with hearing loss. Through the special sensors embedded in the chair, the program informs the users about any obstacle in front of them. The system provides the user with necessary information concerning his/her location and other important details. Apart from that, the chair has an ability to prevent any injuries by taking safety measures when crashing into something. The sensor detects colliding and automatically opens safety cap filled with air. It is a dream of every PWD kids to move independently, go out, take a walk and interact with their friends. Through nonstop wheelchair now it can be achieved. When playing in the garden a parent can track the child from home and even control the wheelchair’s movement”, - Karlo Khutsishvili, person behind the project, noted.

In order to bring to life this and other interesting inventions and make them accessible to the society, the young scientist needs funding. Interested persons can personally contact Karlo Khutsishvili.
