Abstract

The client is a young boy with sensory defensiveness, exhibiting strong negative reactions to external stimuli such as touch, sound, and taste. The best methods to calm the client are through spinning and vibration. The goal of this project was to develop a motorized spinning device that the client can safely operate independently. The design consists of a circular platform driven by a gearmotor and sprockets connected by a chain and two large vibrating buttons that power the device only when pressed down. Using this device, the client is able to calm himself independently, learn cause-effect relationships, and improve balance.
