LinkedIn Post (06/14/21): Utah Students Engineer a Solution for Eye Exams in Remote Areas

University of Utah Moran Eye Center and Mechanical-Engineering Department

The eye-exam table design includes a 3D-printed head support, top, and, from left to right bottom, a portable case that converts to a table with slide-out extensions on both sides to create a larger workspace. The team used collapsible trekking poles as table legs, allowing users to adjust the table height.

It was a privilege to advise a great group of University of Utah Mechanical-Engineering students who designed, analyzed, tested, and constructed this portable work surface and power supply. They did a terrific job–even in the middle of COVID-19 gathering restrictions.
