Join us April 22, 2014 5pm-8:30pm for the Healthy Environments and Active LifeStyles 2014 Open House featuring student projects and ongoing research from multiple organizations at Georgia Tech.

2012 Students teamed up to compete in the Convergence Innovation Competition and devised RemindMe, a device to reduce hazards due to forgetfulness.

Conducting research studies to understand the needs and preferences of older adults, the HomeLab utilizes a 50 and older participant population to help evaluate research projects and industry products.

Students present projects they have developed for class or on their own time at the HEAL open house event.

Whether a class project or a competition entry, student teams work hard to design and prototype their projects.

The Wireless Rehabilitation and Engineering Research Center (RERC) often conduct surveys to understand how people living with disability are using technologies to assist in their daily lives.
