Team Vision for Final Demo and Handoff

Customer Visit

On 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.
