Welcome to the Beaver Country Day School InvenTeam website!

Meet the InventTeam

We are in the process of inventing a hands-free, quasi-autonomous device that will carry up to 50 lb of secured cargo for persons in a wheelchair or who need hands-free mobility. Unlike current wheelchair backpacks and tethered trailers, this unit will follow the user wirelessly. The initial concept came from a student who helps a teacher at Beaver who uses a wheelchair with household tasks such as carrying laundry, groceries, etc. The device could easily be adapted for use in airports or train stations. This could be implemented by harried parents transporting both children and luggage. The initial prototype is estimated to cost $2,000 to $3,000, but the InvenTeam is committed to bringing the price of the unit to under $800.
