Shane Davis
  • Age: 20 years old
  • Weight: 120 pounds
  • Height: 5’ 3”
  • Disability:
    • Cerebral Palsy
    • Spastic Quadriplegia
  • Cerebral Palsy and Spastic Quadriplegia
    • Spastic quadriplegia is a form of cerebral palsy in which all four limbs are affected.
    • The condition is referred to as spastic rather than paralysis because the patient has some movement in all of his limbs.
    • Shane has very limited hip movement and strength, which when combined with severe quadriplegia leaves him confined to a wheel chair.
product specifications
Product Specifications

mechanical aspect of kart
Mechanical Aspect of Kart
  • 90cc 4-stroke gasoline motor with electric start
  • Steel frame
    • Dimensions (L*W*H): 66”x42”x40”
  • Hydraulic disc brakes
  • 220 pound weight capacity
  • Automatic transmission with reverse
  • Full suspension with 3.3” of travel
  • All terrain tires
  • The steering is controlled with a Dayton Gearmotor
  • The gearmotor increases the torque at the drive shaft to 75 in-lb at 90 RPM
  • Replaces the input to the steering column and controls the rack and pinion
  • Feedback to the microcontroller is provided by a linear potentiometer
conventional driving mode
Conventional Driving Mode
  • A conventional driving mode will also be available for Shane
    • The brake and gas pedal are both depressed manually
    • The steering wheel will input information to a rotational potentiometer
      • This information will be relayed through a microcontroller which will engage the electric motor and turn the front wheels
throttle and braking
Throttle and Braking
  • Both the throttle and the braking are controlled by high speed linear actuators
  • When engaged the actuators will depress their assigned pedal by pushing on a cup that is attached to an extension of the pedals
  • Bucket Seat
    • Good lumbar support (padding)
  • Leg Extensions
    • A trough to hold his legs in place
  • Leg Support
    • Extra cushioning
  • 5 point harness
joystick controls
Joystick Controls
  • The go kart will have the ability to be controlled by a multidirectional joystick
  • Forward: Throttle
  • Backward: Brake
  • Side to side: Steering
