POTH 625D1 Design of Assistive Technologies: Principles (1.5 credits)

Offered by: Phys and Occ Therapy (Faculty of Medicine)

Administered by: Graduate Studies


Phys & Occ Therapy : This is an interdisciplinary, project-based course in which small teams of students work with an individual with a disability in the Montreal area to design an assistive technology (e.g. a device, a piece of equipment, an app) that enhances their level of activity and their participation in society. Teams will apply principles of assistive technology (AT) design to create solutions, iterate through multiple prototypes, and learn about the challenges and realities of successfully integrating AT into the lives of individuals with disabilities.
