  5. 5. Universal Design NORSK DESIGNRÅD NORWEGIAN DESIGN COUNCIL As the EasyRoller is a wheelchair mainly intended for public use and institutions, one of the aims with developing the EasyRoller was to acheive an Universal Design of a product which is New – Different – Better. The development was supported by a reference group of MD’s, physotherapist and several users. - Increased safety for the user. Strong Tip Stops which only allow a tipping of 5 degrees backwards. - No loose parts. Always ready to go. - Maneuverability. Very easy to manouver for the assistant, even singlehanded. - Easy Access in and out of the chair, without having to dismantle armrests. - Strong and adjustable brake system. - No metals - Easy to clean - Maintenance limited to a minimum Our aim was not to design a wheel chair for all purposes. The EasyRoller is specially made for institutions and public use.
  6. 6. MRI / Healthcare The wheelchair is especially designed for use at hospitals and institutions. In a MR laboratory no steel equipment is allowed due to the strong magnetic forces. Conventional wheelchairs are hence excluded. The EasyRoller is metal free and is used at a high number of MR laboratories in Scandinavia and Europe. - EasyRoller Hospital & Institution allows patients to be transported directly to the MRI machine. - EasyRoller Hospital & Institution has no parts that can be removed and it demands very little maintenance. The wheelchair has good quality when it comes to driving and maneuvering. The back, the seat and the armrests are upholstered, and combined with the footrest, the sitting comfort is excellent. The lack of any metals, the good maneuverability and the fact that the EasyRoller is easy to keep clean - are among the reasons why hospitals also prefer the EasyRoller as porter’s transport chair. The EasyRoller is tested and approved for use with the 7 Tesla MRI equipment
  7. 7. Security Screening Wheelchair users meet many hindrances, and an air trip can be apprehended as a problem. To give equal rights EU have established Regulation No 1107/2006 concerning the rights of disabled persons with reduced mobility when travelling by air Normal wheelchairs contain metal which activates metal detectors. Users will upon activation, be controlled manually – some feel this as unpleasant. As EasyRoller is metal free - the wheelchair users can easily pass the security control point without being subject to manual control. The back, the seat and the armrests are upholstered, and combined with a functional footrest, the sitting comfort is excellent. It is really a question of respect! An excellent choice for; • Airports • Sea(cruise)ports • Courtbuildings • Prisons
  8. 8. Normal wheelchairs contains metal which will be ruined by chlorinated water in swimming pools. EasyRoller Pool is the first metal free wheelchair special designed for swimming pools and SPA use. The frame and wheel bearings will not rust. Ceramic tiles will not be stained or ruined by rust contaminated water. The frame of the wheelchair is equipped with drillings, allowing the water rapidly to fill the frame. Coming up from the pool, the frame will empty automatically through the same drillings. The chair is equipped with weights of stainless steel to provide even better stability for the chair at the bottom of the pool. EasyRoller Pool has no parts that can be removed The EasyRoller pool model comes without seat and back paddings. This is to our knowledge the first wheel chair that gives the user to decide for herself ; - When to start swimming/exercising - When to rest - When to come out of the water The EasyRoller is certified for use both in saunas as well as in cold weather.
