It is the ancient concept recently returning to scientific thought that examines nature, its models, systems, processes, and elements. It is a fusion of two words, Bios which means life in ancient Greek and mimesis which also is in Greek and means to copy or imitate what something does.
Last Thursday our group of interns presented the cell phone holder for a lady named Pam that has a disease called multiple sclerosis which basically is when her body is paralyzed from the neck down. She can move her hands but does not have the strength to grab her cell phone or push the buttons so we designed the holder to what we think would suit her needs and so she could be able to use it on her daily life.
In the last few weeks I have been working with other interns to create a cell phone holder for a disabled lady who cant move her hands verry well. We have worked on many differnet prototypes but came out with one that we thought would work best for hr needs. When we started out we thought out a way to use an angle for the holder to be facing the lady instead of being flat on the bar that it was going to be placed in.We created the cell phone holder with acrylyc abd cur out the pieces with a laser cutter that we have here at the lab.
