Humanistic Co-Design of Assistive Technology in the Developing World
Though the Materials Science and Engineering Departments at MIT, Dr. Kyle Keane and I took a dozen MIT students to India for a 20 day, 12 credit course. Here, students worked with NGOs, universities, clinicians and people with disabilities to create low fidelity prototypes of assistive technology aimed at enhancing the independence of people with disabilities. We were extremely lucky to partner with IIT Delhi's AssisTech Lab, Indian Spinal Injuries Center, Project Prakash, V-shesh and L V Prasad.
