MSD Team - Motor-assisted Wheelchair Recognized

Tue, 09/26/2017

A motor-assisted wheelchair provides a user the benefits of an electric wheelchair, such as the ability to traverse inclined pathways or move at economically quick paces without losing his or her breath, while retaining the wheelchair's ability to move through doors or other corridors. The goal of this project is to analyze and modify the current prototype by identifying opportunities to make the additional device lighter, more compact, easier to operate, and more energy and cost efficient. The expected result is a functioning prototype capable of meeting all customer requirements which can then be marketed to companies and have a competitive advantage in the market. Read more here.
