The process of repeatedly removing double headed nails from temporary wooden structures is very strenuous on the body. Sometimes this process causes a condition that is known in the construction industry as hammer elbow. Currently the only refined method of removing nails is using a common hammer. The objective of our project is to design a power assisted device that removes double headed nails while minimizing the impact on the user. This report presents a final design, along with its analysis, that solves the defined problem.
