Can you imagine losing the ability to use everyday objects like your phone, typing on a computer or even enjoying a beloved hobby like photography? These are a just a few of the challenges that veterans and civilians with disabilities such as amputations and tremors face every day — and these are the challenges the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) wants to help solve. Through the launch of VA's Innovation Creation Series for Prosthetics and Assistive Technologies on May 15, VA invites all designers, engineers, and problem solvers alike, to help VA find creative ways to solve these challenges. The VA Innovation Creation Series will accept proposed solutions submitted through the end of June.
