Sitting in a wheelchair reduces accessibility and makes almost every daily task more challenging. This includes the ability for wheelchair users to clean their wheels when entering home, which can result in the floor getting dirty frequently. The purpose of the following project is to develop a solution that enables wheelchair users to clean their wheels independently when entering their homes. This is done by identifying user needs and product requirements through user collaboration, continuous ideation, prototyping and dimensioning, while ensuring feasibility and market potential. The concept proposed is a doormat-like product for home entrances which enables the wheelchair wheels to spin. This facilitates the cleaning process, making it possible for the user to independently remove both the superficial dirt as well as the one stuck inside the grooves.
