Low-Tech Solutions in a High-Tech World

On November 27, 2012, I attended the Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference in Manchester, New Hampshire to showcase Dr. Therese Willkomm’s assistive technologies. I have the pleasure of working with one of UNH’s most creative and inventive faculty members, who is regularly referred to as the MacGyver of Assistive Technology (AT). Dr. Willkomm literally travels the world lecturing on rehabilitative technologies and constructing extraordinary tools on site to help those with disabilities.

I review many of the published research or research-focused press releases and news articles coming from UNH. As a publicly funded state institution, I recognize that publishing research and disseminating information is not only the faculty’s highest concerns, but also UNH’s top priority. However, commercializing UNH’s innovations is an integral part of the University’s long-term mission.
