Project Summary Project Information

For an updated project description, click on the following link for the Project Readiness Package. Also see PRP_13045_MobileStander_Micro-grant.pdf.

Mobile assist devices are designed to give someone with a disability some independence and feeling of inclusion. In the case of this project, we are trying to mobilize a pediatric standing device so that a disabled child can stand on the same level as their peers and move at the same pace. This project has never been attempted as a senior design project in the past and as out benchmarking has shown, there is no similar device on the market currently. A device that most closely related to this device would be the wheelchair that stands up vertically and turns into a mobile stander.
