EMU Students Design Walker

Students in Harvey Lyons’ Senior Design class at Eastern Michigan University have come up with a redesigned walker for patients at VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System Medical Center.  Read the full article by Geoff Larcom entitled “Therapy walker to the real world EMU students get a feeling for the way engineering designs can help people.” in the June 3, 2008 Ann Arbor News.

This article gives a good idea of how students need to research the needs of their sponsors and those who will use their design.
