Home > Winners > #34407


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Lazarus - equality found in height

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multifunctional crutches

INSPIRATION:
Most of us try to act fairly to the differently abled but it's ALWAYS not perfect. Most problems treating the differently abled occurs in their different height of body posture and unnatural movements.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This is a simple manpower walking assistant machine, not using any external power. for not-being-awkward and different from crutches, it imitates normal person's walking process. the leg disabled can climb a stairs with Lazarus because it can deploy titanium canes. and also can be transformed into chair with this cane. efficient gradual rehabilitation machine for leg patients or the disabled.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
the person will hold two handles each hand. When the handle is pulled, connected wire pulls piston on the other side of leg. so the leg folds. Finally abdominal, back and little bit of leg muscle muscle forward leg and body. there are two titanium alloy bars on top back side of Lazarus, and it can deploy just like radio antenna. It can perform as a cane for stairs or standing and chair support. Using Lazarus, the disabled grow leg power gradually. Important is during normal social interact, they are overcoming disability. NOT QUIT their jobs for rehab.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in February 18, 2014 and finished in march 25, 2014. Researched and modeling.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
canes and pistons are made of titanium alloy. white body is a same plastic of artificial bone. this material becomes cheaper and cheaper according to research of carbon dioxide compounding tech. (http://goo.gl/Vg6cJw) mother pipe -thick pipe where pipes gather- is designed for minimal friction. There are 6 sections and each section 6 ball bearings arranged 360 degree and mother pipe is consisted of 2 pipes. -total 72 bearings. A wire is manpower transmitter. It is a quadruple helix of wires and skinned with smooth elastic cover which provide minimal friction. Black colored material in shoe is mesh for air circulation and smooth movement of joints.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Width 600 mm x Depth 600 mm x Height 1300 mm Because it is for an individual like shoe, the size cannot be specified.

TAGS:
rehab mech, crutches, medical, interact, social life, walker, manpower, walking assistant

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
It's for human so main resource of design and mechanism was my body. I watched walking process in mirror enormously and walk touching my whole body muscles to see which muscle is active during walking process. Youtube medical video helped. I searched discussions for body parts' specific weight and concluded that Lazarus can work only with manpower. Shoe outsole is a combination of hiking boots and running shoe. I have known some perfect materials so there was little research about materials.

CHALLENGE:
design a realizable mechanism was the most challenging work.
