A.D.A.P.T. (Assistive Devices And Prosthetic Team)
ADAPT is a biomedical engineering team dedicated to improving the quality of life of people with debilitating conditions. Our current focus is the design and implementation of an independent feeding device for anyone who suffers from such conditions as joint contractures, muscular dystrophy and other illnesses which impact a persons mobility. Many of these conditions are incurable, so we have made it our mission to use our skill set and resources to increase mobility and therefore increase independence.
Our team consists of a multidisciplinary engineers with prior experience in design and a passion to improve the lives of others. Currently, we are working with medical professionals at the Alberta Children's Hospital in charge of the Arthrogryposis Clinic as well as the Tetra Society. Both these groups provide us with resources, mentoring and overall support in the development of our devices.
