Ice Hockey Sled

From ATWiki

Abstract

Our client desires to return to fully participating in the sport of sled. He has hemiparesis on his right side in addition to carpel tunnel and a shoulder injury and therefore, struggles to attain and maintain game speed while playing due to not being able to propel and navigate his sled using both hands as most current players of the sport do. To address these participation restrictions, our team is developing a recumbent adaptive sled design by modifying the users’ current sled. This design incorporates a bicycle style drive system that allows for propelling the sled with one leg and rudders like snowmobiles to allow for effortless turning. Our main objective is to design and produce a functional prototype that meets our client’s needs and allows for maximum participation during game play.
