Led by Dr. Mark Colton, 5 Undergraduate BYU Engineering Students have just completed a Capstone project that resulted in a light-weight, more affordable, do-it-yourself wheelchair. It’s adjustable, it’s mobile and it costs under $500. Dr. Mark Colton received his PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Utah, with an emphasis on haptic interfaces. While completing his PhD, he served as a Visiting Instructor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Brigham Young University.
