Abstract

This report outlines the creation and development of a portable and adjustable stander designed to suit the needs of Jack, a young boy diagnosed with a disease called Optic Nerve Hypoplasia. The purpose of the stander concept is to help Jack maintain proper Achilles tendon elongation in order to prevent the need for painful surgical tendon elongation operations. The stander that Jack currently has is bulky, heavy, and somewhat immobile, thus the Mobi-S Stander team set out to design a device that could easily be used and transported between places of use while maintaining functionality. In order to improve upon the design of his current stander, compactness, portability, strength, and user comfort were factors taken into consideration when developing the Mobi concept. Upon completion of the final product, the LMU Assistive Tech team will present the Mobi-Sheldon (Mobi-S) desk stander to Jack and his family.
