What started as an undergraduate engineering project is now a network of engineers & fabricators who volunteer to design, produce & install assistive devices to improve or enable disabled individual’s abilities to complete specific, work-related tasks.

We rely on fantastic engineers to donate their time and talents to make these devices a reality. One example of a project we designed is an adapter to help unilateral, transradial upper extremity amputees confidently operate agricultural tractors. Another example project is an adapter to enable unilateral, transradial upper extremity amputees to safely operate a BCS walk behind tractor.
