This project is a system to help wheelchair users use the kitchen more conveniently. The kitchen is an indispensable place in everyone's daily life. However, for wheelchair users, the height of the kitchen countertop is too high, which makes them unable to easily take the items on the kitchen countertop and causes difficulty, complexity and a lack of safety to their daily life. The kitchen system project in this paper can solve the problem that the height of the kitchen console is inconsistent with that of wheelchair users. A small table that can adjust the height of the desktop can be firmly installed on the wheelchair, which can replace the function of the kitchen workspace and solve the problem of wheelchair users due to different heights in the kitchen.
