Current options for alternative wheelchair propulsion devices are cumbersome, expensive, and dangerous if transfer from wheelchair to another device is required. Devices with chains are unreliable due to chain breakage or derailment. To combat these shortcomings, this project created a gear and drive shaft powered, attachable arm bike prototype. This project validates the concept of a chainless arm bike and lays the groundwork for future products that are more compact and less expensive than existing models.
