Design and disability

We have been conducting S-L experiences for several years between the student of the second course of the degree of Industrial Design and Product Development Engineering of Universitat Jaume and different associations and centers specialized in people with severe disabilities. Our students together with the center, work during two semesters within two mandatory courses in designing and creating prototypes of pieces of equipment for these special end-users. Every year we chose a different center and the students work in a different object.
