This report documents the design process from concept generation to manufacturing for a hand and foot powered cycle named the Quadricycle. The Quadricycle project is a joint effort at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo between the Mechanical Engineering and Kinesiology Departments. The project objectives are to design a portable cycle that can be powered by hands and feet simultaneously in order to provide recreation and rehabilitation for a person with a disability. This project is funded under a grant by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
