Portable Transfer Technology for Boarding Boats Goodwin (PI) 1/2010-12/2010
This project furthered research into a transfer system to enable individuals with mobility impairments to more safely board boats. Research focused on the drive and lift mechanism (powered and manual) which provides a controlled descent, mechanical advantage as a person ascends, and holds its position when the controls are released; an adjustable seat platform/trolley; and an angle adjustable rail system, ranging from flat to vertical.
