Abstract

During the past several years the Texas Tech University Mechanical Engineering Department has been involved in the design and development of assistive devices for the disabled. This effort has produced devices for individual needs as well as larger scale systems that are used by local schools to provide training and a source of income for handicapped clients. This paper describes this program and provides detailed information on three significant projects, viz. Patient Lift Device, Patient Lift Wheelchair, and Automated Gravel Bag Conveyor.
