Imagine spending an entire day sitting in a chair no getting up or relief from being in one position is easier than it sounds. This feeling is something anyone who uses a wheelchair can attest to; while the freedom is fantastic, the design needs a fresh breath of air.

The resulting blueprint is a balanced combination of postural support, propulsion, portability, stability, and flexibility of use while outdoors.
Elderly is a good solution to the problem that the elderly cannot hear the sound of TV due to hearing loss when the family is watching TV. The remote control is equipped with a magnetic stereo, and can be placed next to the elderly to become a stereo transmitting sound. It will not disturb the family watching TV, but also allow the elderly and other family members to have a better sound experience. The grooves designed on the TV BOX make it convenient for the elderly to put back and take out the remote control, preventing forgetting and loss.
