Physically disabled persons face many difficulties associated with their mobility problem. The solar powered electric wheel chair with health monitoring system is proposed in this work to ensure more comfortable in travel and life for the physically challenged people. The electric wheel chair is integrated with pulse sensor which measures the heart beat of the person and the load cell attached to it ensures the presence of the person sitting on the wheel chair. The ultrasonic sensor implemented in the wheel chair informs the obstacle around the person and the LDR attached to it provides emergency lighting when it senses the darkness. These features make the solar electric wheel chair an intelligent one and are very useful for the physically disabled people who want to be independent. The patients staying in the urban and rural areas can be remotely monitored with the help of health monitoring system incorporated in to this electric wheel chair and thus saving costs.
