Description

The Rally Rig is a device that will allow the client, D’vonte Johnson, to film from his wheelchair, despite having cerebral palsy. The frame is built from extruded aluminum, and customized to fit his wheelchair. The camera is attached to a gimbal for stabilization and active pan and tilt control, and the gimbal is attached to a linear actuator which is used to provide vertical movement. Additionally, a control box attached to the arm rest allows D’vonte to control the system directly from his wheelchair. The Rally Rig will allow D’vonte to realize his dream of becoming a filmmaker where it previously seemed impossible.
