Independent Dressing


Metro Makeathon




Youki and his Mum would like a system to allow Youki to have more independence when dressing. Youki is an electric wheelchair user and only uses one hand for all activities. Youki would like a device to help him dress himself using one hand while supporting his own body.


Youki’s team worked with him and his parents to develop several unique solutions. One is a harness that can be attached to a pair of pants to allow Youki to dress himself. This also included a mechanism that allows him to close zippers. Another is a system of pulleys attached to a portable structure that assists his mother in dressing him.
