Wheelchair Accessible Crib

Modifications to a Jenny-Lind style crib made it accessible to a caregiver using a wheelchair. 

The project was carefully designed and built by a team of Detroit Mercy Engineering students and faculty. Care was taken to preserve the original geometry of the bed / rail system.  Due care was exercised to review the final product and instruct the users in proper use.  A liability release waiver was signed by the recipient.
