Digital technologies continue to help improve the lives of stroke victims and others. O'Brien Technologies is finalizing design of a speech-generating device that will assist those who can't speak. The handheld devices are designed to assist speech language pathologists and other health care professionals who treat individuals with severe communication disabilities. The devices can be customized to supplement communication for many users. O'Brien is working closely with the Kessler Foundation, a public charity dedicated to improving the lives of people with physical disabilities caused by stroke and brain or spinal cord injuries. The Advance Micro Power Research Technology Incubator (AMP-RTI) helped design the system it produces in conjunction with 1-Source Electronics.
Being in an incubator can be analogous to shopping in a “big box retailer.” You can find many things you need under one roof along with moral support to sustain and move your startup to a successful launch.
Scientists at four major universities in Europe have released a joint paper describing the use of light to put active materials into motion and to control that motion, producing lifelike mechanisms that may or may not contain living organisms, but can produce useful work.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
