Student Design Project: Roller Bench for Disabled Persons

Prof. Karoly Varadi and Peter T. Zwierczyk


In the final years of design engineering training, the Department of Machine and Product Design of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at BUTE supports the practical training of students through the solution of industrial design problems in teamwork. In addition to presenting our experiences, we would like to illustrate the design process through the overview of a specific problem. The problem is a roller bench design, which helps the rehabilitation of people in wheelchairs, from the first steps to the final design. After the determination of the list of requirements the conceptions were developed. Parallel with conceptual design, the future form design of the equipment was started to be elaborated. The detail of the final construction shows how to achieve real drive conditions with a very simple mechanism and an attractive design.
