Abstract or Summary
  • Transportation plays such an important role in daily living that, without it, a person might be totally homebound. The nation’s air travel system for persons with disabilities is an area of substantial dissatisfaction, with both passengers and the airline industry recognizing the need for improvement. One of the major concerns of today’s practices is that of manual dependant transfers. These transfers are injurious to the airline staff, unsafe and undignified for the passengers, and are often a deterrent for potential wheelchair bound passengers. The need to facilitate these dependant transfers with a mechanical solution complies with human ethics and makes good business sense. This project was undertaken to investigate the performance of various design alternatives by means of 3D modeling and kinematic simulation. The various design iterations were simulated in a virtual environment and their performance was studied. The best design was the one with bent paddles, arms with 2 links having lengths 10” and 12”, and telescoping type base-supports. From the simulation standpoint, this project established and demonstrated the application of a procedure to aid in the evaluation of designs of the transfer device.
