INTRODUCTION TO REHABILITATION ENGINEERING DESIGNS
This course is the first course in a two-course sequence on Rehabilitation Engineering Design. HRS 1706/2706 is in the Fall, and 1718/2718 is in the Spring. HRS 1706/2706 covers the fundamentals of product design and development with a particular emphasis on assistive and rehabilitative technologies. The goal of this course is for students to learn both the process and the tools necessary to develop high-quality designs. The tools we focus on include sketching, computer aided drafting, fabrication and programming. The design process is discussed throughout the class, and relies on a textbook and a series of videos that can be accessed through the internet.
