Project status

Project Status

  • Design meets all customer needs except:

    • Weight (0.5 lbs over)

    • Charging system is not on the chair

  • Unable to test:

    • Maximum weight at 10 degree incline

  • Completed BOM for working prototype

  • Completed all mechanical systems under budget

Conclusion

Conclusion

Current Results:

  • Demonstrated a cost effective solution for rolling backwards

  • Design maintains important characteristics of a manual wheelchair

  • Generator system succeeded in charging a battery

Future Work:

  • Weight reduction

  • Universally adaptable to most manual wheelchairs

  • Incorporate movement assist into design

  • More efficient generator system to charge batteries at lower speeds
