Enabling Technologies

Assistive technology

Enabling or Assistive Technologies are engineering innovations that help persons with disabilities.

Persons with disabilities may need help caring for children, caring for themselves, physical therapy or doing their work.

These sort of projects fill a gap in needs.  Since disability types and levels vary from person to person, there is usually a need for a unique solution for each project client.

Developing products for clients helps Detroit Mercy's engineering students prepare for careers in innovative fields.
