The Move to Learn Innovation (M2L) Lab in the University of Delaware College of Health Sciences (CHS) and the interaction design graduate program (College of Arts and Sciences) were invited to Nemours/A.I. duPont Hospital for Children to take part in a unique event for children and adults with arthrogryposis multiplex congenital (AMC) and their families.
The 2018 AMC Mini Meet Up, organized by Nemours clinical specialist Reenee Donohoe, had a maker faire theme. Researchers, clinicians and students showed off wearable technology, sharing ideas to improve children’s outcomes and quality of life.
The UD Assistive Medical Technology Club also attended. Using tools and basic supplies like strapping, foam padding, switches and PVC pipe, these undergraduate students demonstrated how to create a ride-on car for children with mobility issues.
