Topic: Advanced Mobility for Spinal Injuries
Background: Scientists have been working on understanding signals sent between the brain and the limbs in order to give those with spinal injuries their movement back. While they now understand the signals sent between the brain and body the next step is developing a means of giving movement back.
1. Design a product to give mobility back to spinal injury sufferers.
2. Patients have varying degrees of mobility so a modular system would be beneficial.
3. A permanent installation is acceptable, but a semi-permanent solution may be better if the product is cumbersome or uncomfortable.
4. It should require minimal maintenance.
