Today I want to tell you about an initiative that is using design and creation of assistive technology to positively impact the lives of people with disabilities. It is called "Makers Making Change."
Sick and tired of the constant battle to find accessible parking? Are you able to find accessible parking spaces but frequently unable to use them due to someone else's parking violations? You are not alone!
Have you ever tried to visit a local restaurant with friends, only to find that there are stairs leading to the entrance and no wheelchair ramp in sight?
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting the assistive technology lab at Craig Hospital, an elite rehabilitation hospital housed in Englewood, Colorado which specializes in the treatment of patients with spinal cord injury and/or traumatic brain injury. I always enjoy visiting the tech lab when I return to Craig for outpatient services, but this year I got to try out something especially fun to learn and experiment with.
