- A 9-month embedded interdisciplinary collaborative program between occupational therapy doctoral (OTD) students, master of industrial design (ID) students, OT/ID department faculty, and individuals living with Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP client experts) to co-develop assistive devices that improve functioning during daily tasks/activities.
- FOP client experts experience complex and evolving needs, necessitating ongoing construction of homemade assistive devices. Their solutions are not durable or appealing and do not effectively address the complex needs of individuals living with the condition.
- Further expand the usability of these assisted devices to other populations
