Ohio AgrAbility just concluded an eighth consecutive semester collaborating with the University of Dayton College of Engineering to provide leadership in developing AgrAbility based engineering projects for students enrolled in innovative engineering classes. Project teams focus on solving specific problems of Ohio AgrAbility clients through developing assistive technology or systems engineering. This semester's projects included hitching devices, adaptive canes, utility carts, and a rail system for greenhouse work processes.
Ohio AgrAbility had the opportunity to present to the Ohio Rehabilitation Services Commission in April. The presentation was video linked to all of the offices in the state. The presentation offered the opportunity for ORSC staff to better understand the services provided by Ohio AgrAbility and how to better serve Ohio agricultural workers by making consumer referrals to Ohio AgrAbility.
