Apply your ingenuity with Siemens and Solid Edge
Solid Edge is a portfolio of affordable, easy-to-use software tools that address all aspects of the product development process. Solid Edge combines the speed and simplicity of direct modeling with the flexibility and control of parametric design – made possible with synchronous technology.
It is very likely that you know at least one person who suffers from a temporary or permanent mobility impairment and therefore requires a transport chair to move. Unfortunately, sometimes acquiring a device of this type can be very expensive in certain countries and/or certain areas especially rural areas. Solid Edge from Siemens invites you to share your ingenuity and test your skills in a design challenge to create a functional and feasible mobility solution.
Every day, the market demands more innovative solutions, at lower costs and with high-quality standards, which is why the design and optimization of components play a fundamental role in the development of new products. The “Solid Edge Challenge 2021” consists of designing a solution to transform a conventional chair into a transport chair, thus achieving a functional and feasible device for anyone who requires it. Whether it is an elderly patient who requires long-term use or an injured patient requiring short-term access, transport chair usage is a necessary tool for people.
