A Self-Adjusting Seat Mechanism for the Morphing Handcycle - Refining the Design (including a 3D Model)

This is an improved design from Alan Ball that uses the morphing struts to correct for seat tilt as you morph up and down.

Close-up of the seat adjustment mechansim showing the base supports for a slung seat design. The link arm shown in red causes the seat to adjust as the morphing happens.

The next step is to build a test rig to see how all of these designs work in real life before committing them to a finished design.

Here is the e-Drawings file for the SolidWorks model:  You'll need the free e-Drawings Viewer (for Mac or PC)
