JMU student-designed assistive technologies to be displayed, discussed

jamesmadisonlogopurplepcPrototypes of technologies designed by JMU students to assist people with disabilities in their daily lives will be on display 5-7 p.m. Wednesday at James Madison University.

The devices, which can help with a range of activities from bicycle riding to doing laundry to showering, were designed by students and faculty from the department of engineering and the occupational therapy program.

Through class meetings at Wilson Workforce and Rehabilitation Center and at JMU, students collaborated with community members with disabilities to design the prototypes that supported each individual’s ability to engage in important daily activities.

The opening of the exhibition, “Supporting People through Assistive Technology,” will be held in the Institute of Visual Studies (Roop Hall Room 208), and will feature the prototypes and will provide an opportunity to speak with the students who took part in the course.
