Assistive lifting device gives caregivers a rest

Elaine Gossard, Anna Johnson, and JJ Hobbs, the winners of the 2017 MU CAT Design competition, created a design for a device that would greatly help caregivers of people with disabilities. It is a wheelchair attachment that would be able to lift the user vertically so that the caregiver would more safely and easily be able to move them from the wheelchair and into bed. Elaine, Anna, and JJ describe their design.
