I'm sure many of us have been in a situation where you wish some device existed to make that situation easier. For example, if I drop my phone, I have no way of picking it up and wished that I had an easy to use portable reacher/grabber that could be used by quadriplegics such as myself. I'm trying to think of common problems people with spinal cord injuries and other disabilities face on a daily basis, and find ways of fixing them. As most of you might already know, I'm in University doing an Engineering program and I'm planning on creating a startup that caters to people like us to make our lives better/easier. My goal is to make products that are affordable to everyone (unlike most things in the medical industry) and also useful/helpful.
To do this, I need your help. Please send me a private message explaining any issues you have, in where you would require a supplementary device to assist you. It would help if you provide further detail on how the device would work, how it would look, and so on. It can have electronics or it can be mechanical, it doesn't matter. I'm open to all suggestions & ideas! Also, if you ever wished that a certain app or computer program existed, let me know about it! Once I have a list of ideas, I will discuss it with my engineering team and go from there. If you make a suggestion that we end up creating, I'll send you the finished product for free for testing & review.
