Great accomplishment for Grace Clark Centre for Nursing Studies Student (BN class of 2021)

In the past few months I have been working with a team of MUN students, Katie (engineering), Jack (engineering), and Emma (neuroscience), on a project to submit to the 2018 IDeA competition.

We worked to design a solution specifically for children with spastic quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy. We developed the prototype for a little guy that I work with, Mat, the child in the video attached, who struggles with everyday functions due to the lack of proper head support from his current wheelchair.

I am pleased to tell you, that we placed as a first place finalist in the competition! We were awarded $2000, which we will spending on developing a prototype. We have also been invited to present our project at the Canadian Innovation Exchange Conference in October!
