Portable Transfer Technology for Boarding Boats
Paralyzed Veterans of America Research Foundation: Development grant, pilot project
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.

Interns
Status
Still in process. The project has made great strides but awaits the next phase of research to bring stable watercraft transfer to sale.
