|Project Summary||Project Information|
Pediatric standers are devices that allow for upright maneuverability opportunities for children with certain mobility impairments. This type of stander provides support for children who may have difficulty standing on their own, in addition to bone-growth strength and physical therapy support. The device, further, allows for children to move at some degree of independence, while being remotely-controlled by a supervisor.
The main goal of this project is to develop a functional motorized stander to be operated with a specific child, while allowing various adjustments for other children and standers to be utilized. To start, existing models will be inspected for problems, possible design improvements and shortfalls, for instance, electrical unreliability, cumbersome operation, variable device design, and end-user Do-It-Yourself kit cost, will be addressed. Overall, the team will improve on the existing technical issues that remain from previous stander prototypes, and work towards improving the stander to be "market-ready".
The final design will include the input of industrial design, business, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and computer engineering students to ensure appropriate physical and electrical design, and market engagement for the developed product.
