IC48: Rehab Engineers + 3D Printing + Electronics = Personalized AT

This session provides an overview of a clinical rehabilitation engineer’s role within VA rehabilitation clinics, a basic understanding of the process used to create 3D printed devices and custom electronics and clinical examples of these technologies.  Accessing these technologies in your community will be covered.  Participants will get hands-on with the clinical examples discussed, try out various 3D modeling software, a 3D scanner, simple electronic programing software and see a 3D printer in action.

 

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this session, attendees will be able to;
