The purpose of the project is to design and build a pool lift that can safely lower the child into the water while being seated. Furthermore, it must allow all necessary life support equipment to travel with the child in need.
The problem we are solving is to build a motorized pool lift the child can safely get on while on solid ground, then be moved over water and lowered down. The child’s name is Kiera who has a ventilator and trache at all times. In order to allow her to safely enjoy their pool, we must design a swiveling pool lift where she can get in the chair while on the deck, then be rotated into the water while buckled in. Furthermore, we must ensure she is not able to be lowered too far into the water or too far above the deck.
Design a Pool Lift to safely raise and lower a child into an above ground pool.
Possible Methods of Lift:
Possible Chair Implementations:
This will be the most compact design, however it requires the child to be near the pool edge to get in the seat. However, it would keep the child near the edge of the pool therefore all toys and pool items could be easily accessible.
