People without disabilities take a lot for granted — especially when it comes to enjoying the great outdoors. Pedaling a bike, using a sleeping bag and even planting flowers can be difficult for people with physical limitations. The challenges came as a shock to students in the U’s new Multi-Disciplinary Design program when they started the “Adaptive Sports Studio,” a semester-long, applied-learning experience. The students teamed with the U’s Spinal Cord Injury Program at the Rehabilitation Center to study these difficulties, propose solutions and build prototypes.
