In this paper, a concept for development of cost effective and reliable stair climbing wheelchair is being proposed. Slider-crank mechanism is being used to compensate for any variation in inclination angle of the wheelchair during ascent or descent on stairs. Controlling wheelchair's inclination angle can reduce risk for the rider as it prevents the wheelchair from toppling. A prototype is being developed to validate proposed mechanism. Proposed mechanism allows rider to view in the direction of progress which adds additional safety to the rider.
