Please note that the word is RESCHEDULED, not cancelled!
With several cases of COVID-19 (Corona Virus) confirmed in Connecticut – and given our nation’s current state of emergency and CDC guidelines – we have rescheduled our April 4th meeting. (Because the ability to actually see and try the various state-of-the-art assistive devices currently available is so exciting, this agenda is far too important to simply cancel.)
Our June 6th meeting is already booked with another important agenda (details to be announced shortly) …so our Assistive Devices agenda will be rescheduled to our August 1st meeting.
Please be sure to mark your calendars for both June 6th and August 1st because you won’t want to miss either topic …and please stay safe and healthy!
plus a rep from Encora Inc, the group of MIT graduates who will be recruiting people in our area to participate in their study for the development of a new wrist device! (Although based in the Boston area, they are willing to schedule tests in Connecticut.)
…and we’re still working on trying (and hoping) to get participation from the Readi-Steadi glove.
After a brief presentation on all of the above devices, we’ll have each device (and a rep/facilitator) set up at different tables with plenty of time for each of you to have the opportunity to really try and determine which of these amazing developments might be appropriate and life changing for you!
