Customer Handoff & Final Project Documentation
Table of Contents
Your website should document your journey through MSD, so include work-in-progress as well as latest results. Use pdf's for display whenever possible so that information is easily viewable without the need to download files and open applications. (Your EDGE file repository should still contain original editable files).
All template text must be removed prior to your Final Demo and Handoff
Team Vision for Final Demo and Handoff
- Conduct a field visit with Meghan in order to perform final customizations to her specific needs
- Finish technical paper and manuals
- Prepare for Imagine RIT
- Finish any miscellaneous tasks to wrap up the project
Customer VisitOn April 28th the MSD group went to Newark NY to visit our customer Meghan and her Physical Therapists. It was our first visit this semester, and showing a fully functional standing wheelchair to Meghan made her really happy. The wheelchair worked as desired and all components such as motion, sensors, controls, and lift mechanism worked perfectly. Although the wheelchair worked well, the P.T gave us some advices to make the wheelchair more ergonomic. The calf pad needed to go back, arm rests had to be lowered, and we had to add the seat belt and lateral padding to the wheelchair. After the meeting the group worked on finishing the product so it can be handed off to the customer as a robust, and ergonomic system fabricated for ease of use, maximum support, adjustability, and safety.
