Our Mission

A common rehabilitation device utilized by individuals with leg injuries is the common push knee scooter. However, this device has many drawbacks, which takes away an individual's independence and makes getting around and completing daily tasks difficult. As such, Team SCOOT aims to improve this device by creating a power assist feature which will significantly decrease the amount of effort necessary to move around. Additionally, the structure of the scooter itself is suboptimal and as a result, will be improved through a prototype which will be developed by the team.
