Published in Creating Tomorrow – Oct. 15, 2016 – Senior design students in the Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering Department have created another assistive technology device that may lead to improvements in patient care and mobility.
The electric patient lift system is designed to transfer an individual from a chair or bed to another location. The 'Mobilift' system is a combination of an existing, commercially available hydraulic patient lift coupled with a custom motorized base. The machine can support a maximum of 300 pounds and can be maneuvered manually or with the motorized wheels using a handheld remote.
