Hack For A Cause – Making Physical Therapy For Kids A Bit More Fun

Posted in design, innovation, pioneers by aldorf on April 20, 2011

Rice University students are creating a diagnostic system using Wii Balance Boards to help patients at Shriners Hospital for Children-Houston learn to balance themselves. The project combines the talents of engineering seniors working at Rice’s Oshman Engineering Design Kitchen and students in Comp 460, Professor Joe Warren’s computer game design class.
