Project Title
Swim Support for Teenager with Severe Ataxia
Design Challenge
The purpose of this project is to create an easily-maneuvered swim support that allows Liam, a teen with severe ataxia, to stay underwater without submerging his neck or head. It should be easy to guide Liam into and out of the support, as well as around the pool. The support must be suitable for pool use and outdoor storage in Houston.
