The elders are often incapable of standing up from a chair on their owns due to the lack of strength in their knees. They need an assistive technology device which can serve as their muscles. Therefore, we made "Smart Assistant Chair" to address the need. The device, which is activated by sensors noticing one is about to stand up, can alleviate the elders’ pain by utilizing a motor to elevate them. Moreover, an Android app was developed for data visualization and statistics of this chair. In this project, we have successfully constructed a “Smart Assistant Chair” prototype and went through some testing. We look forward to making it more stable in the future.
