The Assistive Technology Resource Center at WPI originated with the intent to fill the need for a regional assistive technology hub. Over time, the Center has expanded and has aided many individuals by creating new solutions to disability-related issues that were not addressed in the past. After ten years in existence, it became necessary to re-evaluate the operation of the Center and to remedy some of the potential weaknesses that may have kept it from operating at its full potential. This project concentrates on identifying these issues and creating physical solutions for them, such as re-organizing the Rehabilitation Engineering Laboratory, creating a digital project database, and updating the ATRC website.
