Abstract

Embodiments of the present disclosure disclose an operating device for a power-assisted wheelchair. The operating device is configured to operate the power-assisted wheelchair so as to enable the power-assisted wheelchair to perform driving motion, and comprises: a handle portion comprising handle(s)provided on the upper rear of the power-assisted wheelchair for a pusher to apply force; a force sensing assembly arranged in the handle(s) and configured to sense the magnitude and direction of the force applied on the handle(s) by the pusher; and a driving control mechanism electrically connected to the force sensing assembly and configured to, based on the magnitude and direction of the force sensed by the force sensing assembly, control the motor of the power-assisted wheelchair, thereby controlling the driving motion of the power-assisted wheelchair. The embodiments also disclose a corresponding power-assisted wheelchair and an operating method thereof. By adopting a control system integrated with the handle(s) of the chair back, the driving force of the motor is controlled by the pusher applying a force on the handle(s) of the chair back, which effectively enhances the safety and use experience of the wheelchair.
本公開的實施例公開了一種用於電動輔助輪椅的操作裝置。該操作裝置被構造成操作電動輔助輪椅以使得電動輔助輪椅執行行駛運動,包括:扶手部,其包括設置於電動輔助輪椅的後上方的扶手,以供推扶者施加力;力傳感組件,其設置於扶手中,並且被構造成能夠感測推扶者施加於扶手上的力的幅度和方向;以及驅動控制機構,其與力傳感組件電連接,並且被配置成基於力傳感組件所感測的力的幅度和方向而控制電動輔助輪椅的電機,進而控制電動輔助輪椅的行駛運動。實施例還公開了相應的電動輔助輪椅及操作其的方法。通過採用與椅背扶手集成一體的控制設計,利用推扶者在椅背扶手上施加力而控制電機驅動力,有效地增強了輪椅使用的安全性以及使用體驗。
