Alternative Resistance Mechanism
This project aimed to find an alternative resistance mechanism to stacked plates in home gyms. To develop design specifications, state of the art was researched and tested, in addition to also researching user preferences and human exercise physiology. Using these specifications to compare brainstormed ideas, the group eventually decided to pursue a motorized rack and pinion solution. The group was able to go through a proof of concept design and test, before scaling up to a mid-sized model for more testing. Using testing results, recommendations were made to the sponsor on how to further proceed with developing a full-sized prototype.
