Wheelchair Vacuum Cleaning

Omron Taiyo in Beppu had a sheet metal in the floor with holes that were attached to a vacuum. However, since there were many holes, it would have to be a quite strong vacuum. Therefore they put a little spring loaded brush-topped stopper in each hole. Only of there was pressure on the brush did the hole open and the vacuum cleaned the underside of the wheels or shoes.
