A multi-disciplinary student association on a mission to improve the quality of life of community members and those who have served through innovation in prostheses, medical devices and assistive technologies

Projects:

Fishing Rod: Challenger is unable to fish independently and cannot hold the rod or reel it in. The Challenge is to design and create a holder to attach the fishing rod to a wheelchair. The team will also develop a device to help the Challenger reel in the fish with little strength.

Zipper Assistant: Challenger cannot zip pants independently due to having function in only the right arm. The Challenge is to create a device to help the Challenger zip with only one hand.

PuttPutt Course: The Challenge is to design an adaptable and transferable miniature golf course with clubs for people of all disabilities at the NeuroRestorative Center.
