Students join forces to create devices for disabilities

Students 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. They will present their work in two separate sessions: the first on Monday, April 26, 2010, and the second on Wednesday, April 28, 2010, 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 Devices for Disabilities event is coordinated by Ansell, and it is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Dr. Henry Ansell at 610-396-6125 or via e-mail at hga1@psu.edu.
