The University of Detroit Mercy Departments of Engineering and Nursing have collaborated to provide unique assistive devices to physically challenged individuals living in the Detroit metro area. A team of engineering and nursing students are paired with a physically challenged individual. The engineers design and build an assistive device identified by the client as being useful to improving the quality of their life. The nursing students evaluate the device and the client for any potential health-related issues. The interdisciplinary student team works together to provide a safe, useful and health-conscious device with the goal of improving quality of life. This paper will describe the multidisciplinary approach used to educate students while working toward meeting the needs of the physically disabled.
