Abstract

Prior to being diagnosed with a form of multiple sclerosis that severely restricted his mobility, the client was an avid cyclist who biked over ten thousand miles per year. The goal of this project is to assist him in riding a stationary bicycle with the long-term goal of building enough strength to cycle unassisted. The Spin Solution includes 1) a steel support frame, 2) a harness that provides variable core and lateral support, 3) a winch that provides a fail-safe, and 4) an ergonomic armrest to alleviate the load on the client’s left hand. The final product provides stability, graded support, and comfort, and has not only enabled the client to bike 1.2 miles but also encouraged him to set a goal of ten miles per day.
