Guider's Shield

COVID changed typical guiding protocols for the blind. The Guider's Shield enables touch guidance in a safer and healthier manner by reducing the transmission of diseases and giving more control to the person being guided. The goal of this project is to optimize The Guider's Shield design to reduce weight, provide adjustability, simplify manufacturing, determine a way to inject an anti-microbial coating, and reduce cost.

Our team collaborated with Mechanical Engineering 32 on this project.
