The motivation for this project was to design and build a human powered vehicle for the main purpose of recreation. The target clients for the project are adult victims of stroke who now suffer from hemiparesis. After researching the current market and resources for recreation, the team developed four preliminary concepts, used a morph chart to select the best features from each, and designed a final prototype. The prototype was built using the frame from a Mobo Trike and incorporating modifications such that the tricycle is operated with the right side of the body exclusively. The final prototype meets all functional requirements outlined at the start of the project.
