Abstract
Mobility of physically disabled persons is a concerning social issue nowadays. Various hand driven tricycles,wheelchairs, retrofitted vehicles etc. are commonly available for disabled people as a mode of transportation.Existing means of transportation for disabled people require a disabled person to dismount from thewheelchair. A retrofitted tricycle is designed to overcome this problem by allowing the disabled person to wheelup or down his wheelchair onto or down the tricycle. This is achieved using a specially designed platform thatallows the wheelchair to be wheeled up or down. This paper discusses an attempt to design and fabricate aretrofitted tricycle for disabled people. This tricycle is specifically designed to suit wheelchair occupants.
