The Briefing Session

Today in class, Team PivoRest created a design brief of our armrest. This outlines the objectives we will discuss in our presentation in June.  Included in this brief is all the features of our desired arm rest. In addition to this, we have focused more upon the hand piece and how we are going to make it interchangeable. It will be interchangeable using different diameters suited for the needs of different patients.  This is a nice example of ergonomics playing a role into our hand piece. As the rest of our prototype comes along, refinement for new ones is becoming easier.  We plan to start the next one within a week or so.
