This report is the final result of the master thesis that have been done at Sharpman Engineering. Sharpman Engineering is a small development and manufacturing company that produces and make drawings for everything from heavy duty log raft to aids for disabled people. The purpose have been to make one concept that make it easy for elderly and people having problem with knee- and back problem to stand up from a sitting position. The final result will the company have for further investigations and use for a pre-serial production with the goal to produce a new working product.
To get an overview of what is on the market have a comprehensive survey has been done, followed by a survey on patent. This patent survey are for no intrusion on existing patents should occur and give new ideas. The next step was generate concepts from a morphological matrix that has been evaluated from knowledge and experience. The concepts that were interesting to work further on have been made as small scale models, and new thoughts and ideas grown from there.
The concepts and ideas that have been further investigated have been built in large scale prototypes. These prototypes have been tested on users on a community centre for the elderly and the staff working there. The final result will be created as a final prototype. This is a wish from the company and lay outside the master thesis.
