The wheelchair and stretcher are very widely used in hospitals, airports, train stations, shopping malls, etc. This design here is a modified wheelchair stretcher as needed. This machine converts the wheelchair into a stretcher. The chair transforms into a stretcher when the levers are operated. The stretchers can be detached from the main frame according to the convenience of the patient and doctors can make it easier Access to the patient with less effort and transport The folding mechanism enables a large number of stretchers arranged in chair form to be accommodated in a comparatively smaller space. in hospitals, patients have to be moved from a wheelchair to a stretcher, from a stretcher to a bed, from a bed to a wheelchair or vice versa; which creates unsafe conditions for patients. A wheelchair stretcher is required to facilitate mobility for the disabled patient.
