U.S. News & World Report Technology helps ‘locked-in’ stroke patient communicate People who’ve had severe strokes and have a condition called “locked-in” syndrome may benefit from a new technology that allows them to communicate with the outside world, according to new research. The new study reports on a male stroke patient with locked-in syndrome who was paralyzed and could not communicate. With the new “brain-computer interface” […] Waleed Meleis for Northeastern Global News Northeastern students design and build devices to help improve the lives of individuals with disabilities Northeastern students design and build devices to help improve the lives of individuals with disabilities A bow and arrow for the visually impaired. A one-handed guitar. These devices help improve the lives of those with various disabilities. We’ve lost something important in the age of screens. 3D printers can bring it back. We’ve lost something important in the age of screens. 3D printers can bring it back. A new exhibit by NU, Harvard Library, and the Perkins School for the Blind prompts visitors to ponder the experience of reading on screens. Student engineers adapt bikes, cars, guitars and more for clients with disabilities Student engineers adapt bikes, cars, guitars and more for clients with disabilities Northeastern's student organization Enabling Engineering builds devices for individuals with physical and cognitive disabilities. In Italy, students get a history lesson in science In Italy, students get a history lesson in science On a new Dialogue of Civilizations program this summer, Northeastern students learned about the surprising influences of the two most significant revolutions of scientific thought. Capstone project helps people who are blind navigate city intersections Capstone project helps people who are blind navigate city intersections Crossing a busy city intersection can be a precarious task for any pedestrian, a maze fraught with various obstacles. A new app, designed by Northeastern engineering students, would help blind or visually impaired people navigate that maze. Communication devices ‘enable’ children with disabilities Communication devices ‘enable’ children with disabilities An interdisciplinary group of Northeastern students and faculty have combined their knowledge of engineering and physical therapy to design, develop, and then deliver two low-cost communication devices to disabled kids living at a pair of orphanages in Ecuador. Students’ tech-based proposals ‘enable’ elderly and severely disabled Students’ tech-based proposals ‘enable’ elderly and severely disabled Students in the “Enabling Engineering” technical elective recently presented their design proposals to faculty, peers, and project mentors. The eponymous student group may bring all of them to fruition. Engineering ideas to help people in need Engineering ideas to help people in need The student group Enabling Engineering offers young humanitarians the chance to develop products that will make the lives of people with disabilities easier. Student project targets memory impairment Student project targets memory impairment For its senior capstone project, a team of engineering students developed a program using Google Glass. The students say it could help memory-impaired individuals identify people they come in contact with and perform daily tasks. Wheeling toward a sustainable future Wheeling toward a sustainable future Northeastern student-researchers have designed a self-sustainable motorized bicycle that requires no input other than human pedal power.
