LTU / UDM Collaboration Senior Projects (2017)

Comments Off on LTU / UDM Collaboration Senior Projects (2017)

Every year BME students from LTU and Mechanical Engineering and Nursing students from University of Detroit Mercy (UDM) collaborate on senior projects where they develop working prototypes of assistive care devices for patients with physical disabilities. The ‘clients’ are from the VA Hospital, Detroit and this collaboration is a great example of how students can bring different skills together to bring innovative ideas to life. The feedback from the clients is especially gratifying. This year the VA decided to have an event where these products were unveiled to the client and high level administrators from both universities and the hospital were in attendance.

The students gave short presentations and then demonstrated their product to the audience which included their clients. In addition members of various local media outlets were present to record the event and it got good press coverage in all major networks. Some of these are below:

These projects take a lot of coordination and communication but the appreciation from the veterans is extremely gratifying and really highlights the motivation for BME students to make direct impact on people’s lives.

Comments Off on 2017 Science and Technology Showcase

Students from four BME projects presented their poster at the inaugural Science and Technology Showcase on April 5th, 2017. The projects got great reception from the audience which included folks from industry, academia and various organizations. The students not only made valuable contacts but also got a chance to practice for their senior project posters session on April 13, 2017. This upcoming poster session, however, has grade implications 🙂

Science and Technology Showcase

Comments Off on Science and Technology Showcase

Please register and attend. I am also hoping to recruit a few students from BME to be present in the labs to talk to the visitors. I have been told that several Medical Technology companies were invited to attend this event so it may have implications for future opportunities.

For those of you engaged in various projects, there is also a possibility to showcase your work. Please talk to me if you are interested.
