Paper Title:
Design of a Novel Multifunctional Rehabilitation Aid Based on Ergonomics
  Abstract

A novel aid with self-care and rehabilitation function has been designed based on ergonomics, according to the functional demand of ADL (Activities of Daily Living) and the requirements of rehabilitation training for disabled people or elderly. The overall design process and the main functions of the aid were introduced in this paper. Its concept design and motion simulation is finished by using Pro/E software. The aid can meet the ADL demand of the disabled people and elderly such as getting up, going to the toilet etc.
