Enabletech  modified a zero turn radius riding lawn mower to suit the needs of a spinal cord injured woman who herds cattle and sheep for a living, and only has limited use of her arms.  In cooperation with the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of South Carolina, we designed a joystick control and converted the lawn mower to battery operation so that she can travel over her pastures with confidence and perform her herding activities. A second generation of this vehicle was designed by the following class of USC students, which incorporates an all electric design which is quieter and smoother than the former hydraulic design.
