Abstract:During this bachelor assignment the student started design engineering a new rehabilitation product for the Hankamp Rehab. As well the company as therapists brought forth a few requirements for the product. Requirements as comprehensibility, storing and different kinds of exercise with the product are important to take into account. Before the start of this assignment a few concepts were already developed. With these concept and some other questions, visits were made to therapists and clients to check their wishes and ideas. New concepts were developed based on the information from the interviewees. A test of the concepts to the program of requirements was preformed. The decision was made to design a combination of concepts and further develop this idea. After the final design was made it was checked if this design fitted the list of requirements. The design was finalized by calculating the weight of the product, the disassembly, the exercises and the choice of material. The force distribution in the product and how these forces interact with the base frame need to be further explored. Also after a meeting with the electronics engineer there is decided an extra ‘control box’ will be added. This box will contain additional electronics and offers the user the opportunity to make adjustments to the exercises.
