Today, our group started prototyping! We began making a wooden model of what the armrest should look like and how it will function. In addition to this, we decided on the materials for our cover and bought a yard of fabric to practice on. Our team now has access to two differently sized wheelchairs to test our product on. This will help us make our armrest more universal. Before next class, we will be meeting with a consultant on how to work with plastics and will be working with one of the home and career teachers to learn how to sew.
