Transfer Lift for Adaptive Ski Programs

Exhibit Code: SIH-1603
Zone: Innovation Center
Location: Student Innovation Hall (SIH/087) - 1600
Time: All Day
Appropriate for all ages? Yes

Description:
Our team is working to improve accessibility for skiers with impaired leg movement. We've partnered with Swain Mountain's Shared Ski Adventures program to build a lift that will help them transfer skiers from a wheelchair to a sit ski and back, which reduces strain on volunteers who currently have to lift skiers manually.

Exhibitors:
Ana Sorensen, David Villareal, Christopher Shyne, Tom Janosky, Samkit Lunawat
