Designing for our own – The Michigan Engineer News Center

In the winter of 2016, David Chesney was approached with a unique challenge: help a current University of Michigan undergraduate student who is severely disabled adapt to his environment and learn as his classmates do.

Chesney, a lecturer in electrical engineering and computer science, has been teaching EECS 481 (listed as EECS 498 in fall 2017) for nearly a decade. The course is funded by a grant from the Mott Golf Classic and challenges students to utilize rapidly developing technology like motion sensors and augmented reality headsets donated by the Microsoft Corporation to help “clients” with unique physical and cognitive challenges.

Forrest Stump: Fundraiser for Prosthetic Devices

Starting Sep 1, 2017, Nicole Ver Kuilen will be embarking on a journey – called “Forrest Stump” – to raise awareness about the barriers that limit access to prosthetic technology. She will be swimming, biking, and running 1,500 miles down the entire west coast from Seattle to San Diego. Along the way, she will be telling her story, fundraising, and advocating for legislative changes affecting health care coverage for prosthetic devices.
