Students Prototype Prosthetic Arm and Other Medical Devices

By Will Sloan

"This student-run group is focused on creating assistive devices for people with disabilities. In its short history, the group has experienced rapid growth, working with surrounding health facilities (including Toronto Rehab, St. Michael’s Hospital, Sunnybrook Hospital) and expanding its membership (from 23 to 303 members)."
