Abstract

   This project aims to deliver the client with the wheelchair functionality necessary to effectively relieve the pain being experienced due to her spinal deformity. To accomplish this, the spring mechanism used to enable the client to perform the reclining function, was replaced with an electrical actuator and a push button interface. The actuator provided the client with the ability to safely and easily recline the wheelchair when necessary. This wheelchair modification gave the client the ability, for the first time, to independently relieve pain she was experiencing.
