Today the team spent the majority of the day working on the manual while Emily worked on writing the material for the first newsletter, which should be out soon! The engineers took a trip up to Pompanoosuc Mills to test the templates. They took the parts cut by using the templates and built an entire pediatric standing frame. All the while, the team took meticulous notes in order to document the most efficient way to assemble the stander. Everyone is looking forward to assembling them abroad!
Scotty, Riley and Alejandra also painted on the wood sealant that was donated by Hancock Lumber. This is to protect the templates from moisture damage and distortion. Finding ways to keep the Masonite from getting wet is especially important to get right before the team heads out since the first stop is Guatemala, which is in the midst of it’s rainy season. Eventually, Scotty wants to find a different material to use such as a plastic, so that water damage will be less of a concern.
