I am a U-Maise (University of Michigan Adaptive and Inclusive Sports Experience) volunteer with the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. I am also working with Adaptive Adventures to launch an inclusive sailing program using Windrider 17 sail boats and a ride-on sailing simulator developed by Vsail.
My particular area of interest is adaptive recreation equipment that can be made more widely available through more cost effective production. Open sources designs for custom basketball sport wheelchairs are a current focus. I am also interested in how technology can be used to improve adaptive recreation. Especially technology that facilitate skill development and autonomy of individuals with disabilities.
