ABSTRACT
The article reports on the development of a work station designed for people with disabilities by a number of mechanical engineering students at John Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. The work station was crafted by students Boyang Li, Olivia Mao, and Eiline Yoon for handy access to paper files and computer equipment. The creation of the work station is a response to a request from a patient, whose progressive neurodegenerative disease has resulted in her often working from her bed.
