Name: John

Event: TOM @ University



John is looking for an easy and manageable solution to putting on a dog lead. Traditional dog leads that use a spring loaded clip or clasp attached to a collar are not suitable for John. As such, John would like a system that enables him to safely, securely and independently operate a dog lead. 


Team John created a two-part prototype solution that will allow him to take his puppy for a walk! The solution consists of a retractable dog lead attached to his wheelchair and a dog walking harness interfaced with magnetic V-Buckle's that John can operate independently.
