Project Description Page


Our project goal is to collaborate with University of Detroit Mercy in the guided efforts to produce a tangible device design for a spinal cord injury patient. The need statement is as follows: An ability to lift dog bowls without bending of the spinal cord to assist a patient who suffers Cauda Equina Syndrome. The design concept is a lifting apparatus which lifts bowls to patient’s waist and lowers bowls to ground. Introducing an accessible button controller so patient can have direct device interaction. The novelty for our project to provide a cheap or cost efficient approach to the design with long lifetime and minimal maintenance as an approach.
