Let’s face it. No matter how environmentally conscious a person is, the realities of disability are generally not so friendly to Mother Earth. Consider all the necessary medical equipment and their carbon foot print.
So it’s very exciting to see environmental responsibility meets medical technology!
Students at the University of Virginia designed this solar powered wheelchair.
Biomedical research and medical device technology is advancing so quickly! People are designing and building things I could have never dreamed of. But the same can be said about environmental sciences.
Medical Device and Environmental Tech sounds like the perfect marriage! And this chair is just their first born.
I can’t wait to see the next thing I haven’t dreamed up come to life!
