Too often, we forget that technology products are not just for playing games or to help us do our daily work. This week, the University of Michigan published a report on how its engineering and computer science students have developed a special app to help cerebral palsy patients. It’s a wonderful read.

Students were looking for a project to tackle and decided to focus on helping people with impaired motor skills. Soon, they brought in rehabilitation engineers from the University’s C.S. Mott Hospital.

The end result is pretty neat, as this YouTube video shows.

Stories like this aren’t surprising. The iPad’s relatively inexpensive price (compared to laptops) and size make it ideal for those in need. I invite our visitors to read the entire article here. You’ll be happy you did!
