Four Flip Clothes Drying Rack - This is a redesign of the standard clothes drying rack. The idea of the project was to make clothes drying easier to the disabled and elderly.

Inclusive Clothes Drying 2010

My individual project in fourth year was aimed at increasing the ease at which the elderly and disabled could dry their clothes. The solution is a wall mounted rack that folds flush to the wall to allow space for wheelchair access. All of the rails are connected using a coupling device allowing the full rack to be pulled into position in one movement.
