The Actuator: a New Wheelchair Designed to Prevent DVT
Division:Life Sciences / None
Region:Vancouver Island
City:Victoria, BC
School:Glenlyon Norfolk School
Abstract:This new wheelchair design that I invented increases circulation to the legs to prevent deep vein thrombosis in wheel chair bound people. The secondary purpose is to increase range of motion of the legs and prevent excessive scar tissue post-operatively. This project is dedicated to my grandmother, Mary Kozlo, who gave me inspiration after her stroke and death from artery occlusion of her left leg.
