Senior Project X-Ray Plate Holder (The Wilds) Final Report
MetadataShow full item record
Our group is creating a robotic x-ray plate holder for The Wilds so that they can x-ray the legs of giraffes while they are standing and non-sedated. The Wilds reached out to Zane State College for this project due to their old x-ray plate holder wearing out. The old x-ray plate holder was created by Adam Davis who is the head of animal management and came to us for this project. There are many requirements for a project like this since it deals with live animals. The x-ray plate holder will need to be quiet, slow moving, lower and raise from the ground up to 48 inches, extend arm at least 12 inches, withstand a warm and humid atmosphere, and be easily movable in case the animal lashes out. Our goal is to complete this project so that The Wilds has a reliable x-ray plate holder that they can easily and effectively use.
