Title An Educational Platform for Physically Disabled People in Designing/Manufacturing of Supporting Equipment
Project Number LLP-LdV-TOI-2007-TR-064
Project Type Innovationstransfer
Transfer of a technical training course innovative concept on the field of used medical devices
rehabilitation, addressed to people with difficulties to enter the labor market (disabled,long-term
unemployed, low-educationnal level)
Summary The main objective of the project is to establish an educational platform which provides theoretical and practical training for physically disabled people in designing/manufacturing/testing/selecting repairing of supporting equipment such as wheelchair, prosthesis, elevators, etc.
Description The concept is an open source of knowledge available to all European citizens via internet and this knowledge can be available in hard copies too. They will be distributed all over the union in a request. This project aims at establishing an education and training platform for disabled people in participating European countries. Through this education and training, the disabled people will directly take part in designing/manufacturing/ testing/selecting/maintenance processes of supporting equipment to be used by other people like themselves. By enabling the direct contribution of disabled people to all stages of these processes, a unique example and innovative model for all other European countries will be introduced. This will increase not only the rate of using such equipment, but also their functionality, reliability and quality. As a result, handicapped people will have a relatively better quality of life and employment opportunities in Europe with the skills they acquire. With the know-how, experience and knowledge gained through the participation of disabled people, equipment manufacturers and designers for disabled people of European countries will have a competitive advantage over the rest of the world.
