The rehabilitation process to recover from severe lower limb trauma can be long, arduous, and expensive. To help those injured in the Boston bombings, the MIT Media Lab’s Biomechatronics Group is collaborating with the Mass Technology Leadership Council and No Barriers Boston Fund on two initiatives.
The first initiative involves the Mass Technology Leadership Council working to ensure that each person is provided with the assistive and rehabilitative solutions that best address their injury. If you have a technology that you believe could help those who suffered traumatic injuries, please contact the Mass Technology Leadership Council by clicking here.
Secondly, the No Barriers Boston Fund has been established to provide the victims with devices to allow them to lead full and active lives. The fund will provide these individuals with prosthetic limbs specifically designed for athletic activities such as running, cycling, swimming, skiing and even dancing.
