Team Vision for Problem Definition Phase

Our team goal is to design and build an elbow model for use by Biomedical Engineering students in their lab setting that can be used to understand the function and biomechanics of the arm. We want to improve upon the current classroom model by creating an elbow model with three 'muscles' that work as a system on the elbow joint and generates more realistic results. We plan to work with our customer, guide, and field experts to generate a working elbow model that satisfies our constraints and needs, matches realistic human data, and is easily reproduced. Our MSD team will work together to research potential solutions, generate new ideas, obtain relevant human test results, create new design revisions, and communicate with our customer to create a final product that will be placed in a classroom setting for use by RIT students
