Related URLs:

Rehabilitation engineering involves the application of engineering sciences to design, develop, adapt, and apply assistive technologies to problems confronted by individuals with disabilities in functional areas, such as mobility, communications, hearing, vision, and cognition, and in activities associated with employment, independent living, education, and integration into the community. It differs from classical biomedical engineering by its focus on improving the quality of people's lives, rather than improving their medical treatment. This course will require participation in simulations of disabilities and projects to develop new technologies. No textbook is required. Prerequisite: Physiology Prerequisite: Physiology
