Research collaboration between MATSOL, UCD and CSUS to develop a steering mechanism to enable hemiplegics to operate and steer manual wheelchairs.

Clinical and performance evaluation by Los Amigos Rehabilitation and Education Institute (LAREI) of the prototype steering mechanisms.

Steering Mechanism refinement leading to a production model.

Once evaluations have focused on an effective mechanism, the device will be subjected to final design and engineering refinements.

The resulting product will then be made available to rehabilitation facilities and their hemiplegic patients.
