Event description

Description

What is it?

hackABILITY will raise awareness about emerging technology opportunities in the area of assistive technology, as well as support collaboration between educational institutions and established businesses. hackABILITY is facilitating the rapid prototyping of devices that may be considered for further development and commercialization.

How does it work?

hackABILITY is bringing together teams to create solutions for defined assistive/adaptive needs in the community. hackABILITY teams consist of at least 4 people including a person with a disability or a caregiver, plus members with experience in design, coding, and engineering. Solutions will be assessed based on innovation, scalability and affordability criteria.

When is it?

We've tasked our teams with taking the 'dis' out of 'disability' and showcase how their assistive technologies can help change the lives of those living with physical, mental and sensory disabilities. On December 7, we invite you to join us at the University of Toronto Mississauga and watch our finalists present their solutions to our esteemed judges.
