Project Details

Description

In order to make transport systems more efficient in terms of energy use, making viable the development of vehicles powered by electric power and encouraging the use of mobility systems with human propulsion, one of the main goals is the reduction of weight of the vehicles. as a solution to this problem, magnesium and its alloys are currently being studied, given their density is much lower than other metals as well as properties such as high specific mechanical strength, good machinability, excellent recyclability and high vibration absorption. however, the high chemical reactivity and low wear resistance of this material have limited its application. in this way, this project is framed in the axis for the aggregation of value to renewable and non-renewable resources,with the development of a new material with application to the automotive and aerospace sector, and also takes into account contributing to the other two axes, building peace in the area of ??rehabilitation of people in situations of disability and green growth by considering only processes and materials environmentally sustainable. regarding the product to be developed with the new material obtained, it has been detected that it is important to have a wheelchair design that meets the particular needs of the population affected by mutilation of lower limbs, in search of better rehabilitation and increase the mobility capacity of this population.peace building on the issue of rehabilitation of people with disabilities and green growth, considering only environmentally sustainable processes and materials. regarding the product to be developed with the new material obtained, it has been detected that it is important to have a wheelchair design that meets the particular needs of the population affected by mutilation of lower limbs, in search of better rehabilitation and increase the mobility capacity of this population.peace building on the issue of rehabilitation of people with disabilities and green growth, considering only environmentally sustainable processes and materials. regarding the product to be developed with the new material obtained, it has been detected that it is important to have a wheelchair design that meets the particular needs of the population affected by mutilation of lower limbs, in search of better rehabilitation and increase the mobility capacity of this population.it has been detected that it is important to have a wheelchair design that meets the particular needs of the population affected by mutilation of lower limbs, seeking to achieve better rehabilitation and increase the mobility capacity of this population.it has been detected that it is important to have a wheelchair design that meets the particular needs of the population affected by mutilation of lower limbs, seeking to achieve better rehabilitation and increase the mobility capacity of this population.
