Future Steps

Since we can't finish everything we would like to in only one semester, there are still many things we'd like to see done with our design.  A classmate is traveling to Africa to work with local workshops and finalize our product over the summer.

After this semester, we'd like to see the following completed:

  • Finalize all the force and stress calculations to minimize rod size, cost, and weight. 
  • A entire prototype built, complete with armrests and wheels
  • Test the prototype to identify weaknesses and problems
  • Get local user feedback on design and prototype
