Engineering Students’ Winning Designs Unveiled in 2011 Extreme Redesign Contest by Dimension 3D Printing

First Place Design Description
Prince says he became inspired when a local elementary school purchased an assisted stander (called a commercial prone stander) to help build leg muscle for a young student with cerebral palsy (CP). Prince’s redesign improves adjustability and functionality of the prone stander, allowing children of all different shapes and sizes with CP to be comfortable and accommodated.

First Place Design Description
Chairs for young children are typically designed much as they are for adults – for sitting. Given children's tendency to do anything but sit in a chair, potential for danger inspired the "Flip n' Slip." The multi-functional children’s chair can be configured various ways: as a chair that can rock back and forth, as a lounger, or as a slide. The device can also become a table surface. Designed with safety in mind, the Flip n' Slip is molded as a single piece, supports no sharp edges and has grooves at contact points to reduce surface contact and slippage.
