Abstract or Summary
  • Business and recreation in the modern day world often include air travel as their cornerstone. Travelers who are disabled and wheelchair bound have to undergo a transfer process to board and deplane a commercial aircraft. This transfer process is typically done manually, with agents physically lifting the passenger who is disabled. This manual process exposes the passenger and agents to risk of injury. By developing a mechanical device to aid in the transfer process, those risks could be minimized while simultaneously providing a better experience for those involved. Other Individuals have investigated and quantified various aspects of this design challenge. The work presented in this document was conducted to first combine the previous research, and then make further developments through analysis, design, and testing. The developmental efforts were focused on four major components of the prototype: the lifting column, the passenger interface, the links of the articulating arm, and the base. In this development process, care was taken to ensure that the individual components would integrate to make a single prototype device capable of completing a passenger transfer on board a commercial aircraft.
