In this paper, a smart wheelchair is proposed and implemented for assisting persons with paralysis. The wheelchair can be controlled by four different modes, each targeting a particular case of paralysis or disability. Keypad or joystick is mounted on the wheelchair to control the motion of the wheelchair. Head band moves the wheelchair by moving head in the direction of motion. Eye blink sensor is used to control the wheelchair by blinking the eyes. The disabled person can control the wheelchair using Bluetooth application which reduces external assistance. The patient gets the reminder of food and medication via alert module and the care taker gets the alert when the patient is in need. This wheelchair can be used to almost all kind of paralysis like paraplegia, monoplegia, quadriplegia and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
