The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Massachusetts recently wrapped up the first session of a new, 10-week summer program that is going to make a big difference for their lucky clients. The Open Style Lab connects people with disabilities to a team of designers, engineers, and occupational therapy students. Calling the program a “multidisciplinary approach to a complex issue,” the teams design clothing prototypes that addresses each client’s specific needs based on their unique medical conditions. Open Style Lab had their final presentations on Saturday, August 16 and the results were nothing short of amazing. The teams spoke about the clients, presented their challenges, and explained how the new designs could help improve their lives. One of the teams helped a woman with a prosthetic leg by creating a protective prostheses clothing guard and a new, easy to put on and take off, pair of jeans. Another team developed a 3D printed sleeve aid for prosthetic hands that helps a client put on his jacket. Still another team developed a dress shirt with voice controlled thermal regulation for a man who is quadriplegic. All of the Open Style Lab designs can be seen at the Museum of Science in Boston through October.
