Recently, the handicapped persons require more high quality electric wheelchair to move more flexible in the home or in a hospital. Also, if we use electric wheelchair the maintenance is needed for keeping safety. For this reason, we propose a wheelchair management system that can manage electric wheelchairs using Agile-Kanban. Agile is a technique to develop the software and manage the work efficiency. Kanban is a method to support Agile development. In this work, we design and implement a wheelchair management system using IoT sensors and Agile-Kanban. Our proposed system can manage the wheelchair efficiently. We present the design and implementation of the proposed system and show that it can measure the wheelchair’s states and wheelchair’s activity.
