DIY Simple Bedspread Aid For Special Needs

This simple bedspread aid helps special needs patients remove their bedspread and pull it back in place when they cannot do it themselves. via instuctables

We are students that had this assignment for the course Design for (every)one. In this course we need to work with a client that has a special need, for our case it is a person who has SMA type 2(Spinal muscular atrophy is a serious disease that causes nerves and muscles to stop working). This means the client can not lift any thing heavier then a small water bottle. Our client had a struggle in her bed, when she is too warm she could not remove the sheet from her to cool down. And when she was to cold, she could not place the sheets on top of her.

Our solution is a kind of caterpillar that is controlled with 2 strings. One string for removing the sheet and the other string that is located in the caterpillar to place the sheet back. The strings will be powered by a motor, the motor is not discussed in this instructable. A holder for the caterpillar is also mentioned.
