Making the Best of What is Around

As Team PivoRest continues working on the second prototype with modifications being put into place, we are trying to use different resources to see what will work best.  For the hand piece, we are researching the use of a toilet paper holder with material around it so that it will be easily removable and comfortable.  Also, adjustments have been made as far as the size of the actual arm rest and the cushioning.  With all this going on, members have also been looking into leading manufacturers of wheelchairs and standard sizes so we can create the most universal arm rest possible. With winter break quickly approaching, we aim to have the second prototype done and onto the third.
