Oxy-Reel

Picture
Oxy-Reel is a terrific solution to a real and present danger. Individuals needing supplemental oxygen often find themselves surrounded with 50 ft of unnecessary oxygen hose tangled around their feet creating a safety hazard for themselves and those around them. The Oxy-Reel solves this problem by giving the user a wireless remote controlled take-up system to easily and quickly retract any undesired hose and eliminate the tripping hazard.
A critical part of the design required the design of a very unique bearing/clutch device that would allow the take-up spool to rotate freely when pulled but would engage and retract when commanded. Motor selection, RF shielding, electronics packaging and plastic injection molding were all required elements of the design of this project.
