The Department of Biomedical Engineering is introducing a new class in "Clinical Innovation" that will be offered to undergraduates beginning in Fall 2021.

The course will require students to work in teams to find solutions to unsolved clinical problems. More than hypothetical case studies, the clinical problems addressed by the class are actual challenges presented by clinicians from UAB Hospital. The idea for the course grew from the framework created by Solution Studios, an undergraduate research opportunity originally offered to students in the Sci-Tech Honors Program. The new course, which partners with the Collat School of Business's Industrial Distribution Program, retains the interdisciplinary aspects of Solution Studios and is open to all UAB students.

In the community of people living with mobility impairments, affordability is one of the largest issues facing accessibility to therapeutic devices. It is no surprise, then, that UAB graduate students decided to directly combat this problem with the creation and development of a device called the “Motogaitor.”
