Rajesh Kannan, PhD scholar at Amrita University develops a wheelchair which moves based on the person’s hand gestures for elderly person. With most advanced wheelchairs in the market costing a fortune, making it out of reach for any middle class family, Rajesh wanted to produce something which would never be a financial burden for someone in need. As challenging as it may sound, Rajesh decided to make it happen. “After five years of experiments, some of them failing miserably, I came up with a reasonably priced G-Pad. With this, all that the user needs to do is put their hand on the pad and decide in which direction they want to head,” he says.
