UA Should Have More Left-Handed Desks to Become More of an Equal Opportunity Campus
We surveyed the ratio of left-handed desks to right-handed desks at UA, as well as the ratio of left- to right-handed students, and found that statistically, there are far too few specialized desks for the left-handed students at Akron. An analysis of desk ratios to the age of the classroom building was also performed.

Senior Design Capstone Project: Ankle Brace Testing Device
In order to capture baseline support data for a line of ankle braces, we designed a fixture to mount to an existing MTS testing machine. The goal was to mimic the motions of inversion and eversion on an ankle, and in doing so, collect force and displacement data to compare brace support quantitatively. In order to do that, an artificial foot, ankle, and leg were assembled and mounted to the machine, with a brace and shoe attached to it; a software program was launched to direct the correct motion to the machine and capture data; and a fixture to guide the foot into a realistic yet consistent movement pattern was designed and 3D printed. The project was a success, producing reproducible data with statistically significant differences between test settings.
