This reports is on the research of a design of a motorised tricycle for disabled person. This tricycle is specifically designed to suit wheelchair occupants of healthy upper torso with pelvic to foot restraint. It is also designed to suit a commonly available wheelchair. Existing tricycle for disable requires a disabled person to dismount from the wheelchair onto the tricycle. The motorised tricycle in this project is designed to overcome this problem by allowing the disabled person to wheel up or down his wheelchair onto or down the tricycle. This is achieved using a specially designed platform that allows the wheelchair to be wheeled up or down. The prototype of this tricycle have been fabricated. The anthropometrics data that need to be considered in the design of the platform and frame of the tricycle have been taken into consideration at the design stage of the tricycle.
