Wheelchair Camera Mount

Empathetic Engineering

A high school engineering team working to help those with disabilities.


Many people who use wheelchairs struggle to record themselves or their surroundings due to mobility or other issues. Customers need a device that they can easily control to allow them to record both video and audio. Additionally, the device needs to be capable of many orientations to allow for a broad range of uses. A device will be designed to satisfy their requirements while staying small and under budget.
