AbstractIn Phase II, a powered mounting and positioning system is developed and provides independent access to communication devices, work surfaces, books, cell phones, PDAs, food, drinks, and more for individuals with significant limitations. Device positioning is controlled through switches, voice, or joystick control. Programming is accomplished with a single switch. A person may move the mount to one of four custom set positions and make independent adjustments to each joint, the tilt, and the height. This technology can be applied outside the rehabilitation field. The commercial potential exends to other areas, such as manufacturing and assembly settings, doctors, dentists, surgeons, hospital beds, photography and lighting applications, ergonomic workstations, nursing homes, schools, laboratories, and home entertainment systems.
