The wheel chair is transportation device for patients, physically handicapped people and old age people. These wheel chairs have been using for many decades. As the technology is developed with time, much advancement took place in the design of the wheel chair. Though there is much advancement, the patients are still facing some problems with the wheel chairs while flipping wheelchair into bed. This is the situation happening for many years. So, to avoid this problem and make them ease to convert their wheelchair directly to the bed whenever they require, this mechanism will help them. This mechanism makes the patient very comfortable in converting his/her own wheelchair into bed. This multipurpose wheelchair is developed by one of the methods in dimensional synthesis of mechanism which is “FUNCTION GENERATION-THREE POSITION-Graphical method” to define the dimensions and positions of the links.
