Today (3/20/14) we had three Mechanical Engineering Students live in the WVUD studio to talk about their Senior Design projects:
- Sarah Masters, who worked with the QuadCrew on an adaptive rowing project which would allow those with quadriplegia, paraplegia, hemiplegia, multiple sclerosis and paresis to operate a crew boat.
- Anthony Rossi, who worked on the Independence Orthotics Diagnostic Project, software designed to help with amputee prosthetic diagnosis.
- John Koshy, who worked on Playskin Lift, an exoskeleton designed to help physically disabled infants move around.
We discuss the ideas and inspirations behind each of these projects and what the process behind them was like. We also talk about the experiences they had collaborating with students and faculty from outside of engineering, including biomedical engineering, business faculty and even fashion students.
