The workstation senior design project is a wheelchair accessible, left-side desk. It is for the client, Paige Librandi, who has cerebral palsy and is left-hand dominant. The purpose of the desk is to provide multitasking features to create an efficient work space for Paige to work on. It aims to also increase her independence by incorporating tools that prevent items from falling off the floor where she can't retrieve them.

The workstation design has several features, including a rotating surface, sliding bookcase, and gliding platform. These tools provide simultaneous work spaces and storage in a small amount of space to work in. This project will provide Paige a schoolwork and storage place and address her need that her previous desk did not meet.
