Aging Innovation Challenge

Posted by Tim on October 25, 2020 in Uncategorized

We’re seeking innovators to develop prototypes that will assist aging New Yorkers and their caregivers in completing activities of daily living (ADLs). ADLs include taking a bath or shower, getting dressed, using the bathroom, getting up from a chair, walking across a room, or eating a meal.

Your innovation could make the difference to someone fighting to maintain independence in their home or to a stressed caregiver providing daily assistance to a loved one while maintaining a full-time job. The time to create tomorrow’s solutions is now.

Apply to compete as an individual or a team. All students both undergraduate and graduate, from all academic disciplines are encouraged to form teams and compete. Teams may have faculty members, post-docs, and/or research assistants as part of their team.

Apply to compete by November9th

November 13th from 2– 4:00 p.m., a virtual competition over Zoom.
