Team Vision for Problem Definition Phase

During this phase our team planned to outline our project goals, use cases, customer requirements, engineering requirements, constraints, and organize our planning and execution methods. We were able to accomplish these tasks for where we stand now, but recognize that some of these documents will be edited throughout this design process.

Project Summary

This project would aim to develop and build an inexpensive accessible exercise machine that will help strengthen muscles and improve range of motion while allowing the user to feel secure. The machine is intended to be set up anywhere with enough space for it to be used properly, such as in a gym, a physical therapist's office, or a home gym. Ideally, this machine should adjust and accommodate for any individual’s needs so he or she may have a positive experience.

Project Goals and Key Deliverables

At the end of this project, the customer will receive a completely functional prototype of our final design. The RIT SLC will be allowed to use the device if they so choose, but the team will retain IP for the project.
