  • Students design exercise device for people with paraplegia

    PhysOrg - 05/15/2015

    Five Northeastern University student-researchers have retrofitted a rowing machine with an ingenious device, allowing people with paraplegia to exercise without the aid of a trainer.
    The modified ergometer, dubbed the “power row,” was designed for a senior capstone project under the direction of Sandra Shefelbine, an associate professor of mechanical and industrial engineering. Team members comprised Margaret Bergson, Robert Griffith, Jenna Hormann, Chris Parfitt, and Nikita Shah, all E’15.
