Team Bike Raptor is a collaboration project between LTU and University of Detroit-Mercy (UDM) and the group is comprised of three students each from Biomedical Engineering students (LTU), Mechanical Engineering and  Nursing (UDM). The goal is to design and fabricate a working device for our client who was in an automobile accident and sustained a spinal cord injury (SCI) that left him with incomplete quadriplegia. The client has made some recovery and he has recovered some of the movement in his arms. It was determined that a custom exercise device will aid in his rehabilitation. The machine, Bike-Raptor, targets strengthening of muscles and increasing range of motion. The design allows the client to push on pedal-like handles attached to a wheel with magnetic resistance mechanism. It is our hope that this machine will improve his rehabilitation efforts so he can gain independence at a faster pace than without this type of exercise.
