- Learn about ALS
Emily Carr University of Design - Industrial Design students, in partnership with University of British Columbia - Mechanical Engineering Students are working to produce a neck brace and or body harness for people with advanced ALS. Our goal is to design and produce a unit that assists the movement of the head (nodding and lateral rotation) via an electronic mechanism. This semester we are working on research and development. Next semester we plan to produce a working prototype by March. As students, we would greatly appreciate comments, concerns, and feedback regarding our process and design of the product.
