Lower Body Rehabilitation Device

Biodex Sit to Stand

Patients with disabilities that limit their lower body strength’s ability to sit or stand can be effectively rehabilitated with by a Biodex’s Sit to Stand medical device. Our design contributions related to the overall appearance of this product began with an introduction to an early prototype shown in the slides. Before concepts could be developed, a thorough understanding of patient interaction, range of motions, budgetary costs, materials and structural requirements were all required. A number of concept renderings were created and presented based on different aesthetic alternatives as well as a variety of materials and manufacturing methods. The rotationally molded seat and articulating back support were also developed to optimize patient comfort.
