This project develops the conception of the design of a wheelchair with an automatic standing system that is light and portable. The target is the older adults of the Peruvian population, considered in the country from 65 years of age, so the calculations are based on national anthropometric measurements. The qualities of lightness and portability are addressed through the use of low weight materials such as aluminum for the main structure and ABS for the 3D printing of the couplings. For the validation of the design, mechanical, electronic and control guidelines involved to ensure the functionality and operation of the system can be observed throughout this paper
