• Shower Chaise


Currently, few options exist for people with vertigo, or who have lost mobility due to strokes and other disabilities, to shower without help. Student Tye Martin’s project, the Shower Chaise, focuses on developing a customizable support system that allows people with short- or long-term disabilities to regain independence when showering.

This project received a National Science Foundation I-Corps (Innovation Corps) Program Award. For more information on the I-Corps program to foster innovation among university scientists and engineers, visit http://loborainforest.com/icorps/
