IC71: Creating Partnerships Among Clinicians and Engineering Programs

Have you ever wanted a custom-built piece of equipment for a specific patient? This session outlines ways in which clinicians can partner with engineering education programs at their local colleges or universities to create customized adaptive equipment designed to meet the needs of individual patients. Working with clinicians provides engineering students an interprofessional opportunity to work on meaningful product design experiences while clinicians and patients can benefit from access to customized adaptive equipment.

 

Learning Objectives:
