Students join forces to create devices for disabilitiesStudents majoring in the college's engineering and occupational therapy assistant programs have joined together to create devices to meet the needs of individuals with physical challenges as part of the Adaptive Equipment Project (ADEP). They will present their work in two separate sessions: the first on Monday, April 25, 2011, and the second on Wednesday, April 27, 2011, both at 1:00 p.m. in room 5, Luerssen Building.
The work is the result of interdisciplinary class projects in electrical engineering, taught by Dr. Henry Ansell, Assistant Professor of Engineering; mechanical engineering, taught by Dr. Rungun Nathan, Assistant Professor of Engineering; and occupational therapy, taught by David Kresse, Senior Lecturer in Occupational Therapy.
The annual event, formerly known as Devices for Disabilities, was initiated and is coordinated by Ansell, along with Dr. Rungun Nathan, and it is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Ansell via e-mail at HGA1@psu.edu or Nathan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
