dc.description.abstractWe are all familiar with the urgent problem of aging populations affecting many nations. This leads to reduction in independency due to varies physical restriction, resulting in the increasing demands of the caregiving community. Solutions that help reduce the elderly population’s dependency on external help include modifications of public spaces to cater towards such needs. Yet in many contexts, such public spaces are poorly designed or even unusable. On top of the fact that Singapore is a space constrained nation, there is only that many measures the government can take to enhance public space’s usability. On the other hand, an alternative solution is through specialized personal assistive devices.These devices together with public spaces catered towards them, make life easier. The aim of this project is to focus specifically ontheimprovement of devices used by the aging and disabled population; to reduce/remove the need of external help and simplify movement in space constrained areas while maintaining safety measurements.en_US
