Funding

We have contacted, the Missouri Department of Professional Engineers for possible funding. We have aquired an email asking about, as well as we now might have a professional mentor. In other terms the idea showcase is in two weeks and we have a poster board and are finding information, as well as our small scale model.

Idea Showcase Part Two

We have began to make a poster to represent what we are trying to do, along with a small scale model this poster board will provide more information. We want to create this poster because hydraulics are rather complex things and it would be hard to represent them with just a model. We will have a list of the muscles we are going to "replace" as well as how we are going to support the back.

Idea showcase

We are now preparing for idea showcase. We must now have a visual representation of or exosuit, a small scale representation to present. We are currently making a small scale hydraulic arm using syringes as the hadrics to push and pull,  as well as 4mm tubing connecting to syringes, so when you pull one it contracts the other, using two of them to work in conjunction we could have a functional hydraulic arm.
