people with disabilities who want to
continue to work as a mechanic.
Another successful project is a mechanic’s creeper built by students that takes away the need for agility to get under a car by automatically lowering the person to the ground (pictured right). The device was built for Albert La Bounty, a Logan resident who lost the use of his legs after a motorcycle accident 20-years-ago.
