[Source: The Arizona Republic] - Arizona State University Polytechnic engineering technology students are taking a Valley entrepreneur's concept and turning it into a reality that could help bring comfort to thousands.
Tempe physical therapist Dwight Schaeffer long has considered how a machine could do the highly labor intensive work that typically is done by therapists, and last year he took his patented plan to ASU's Advanced Technology Innovation Center (ATIC) to see if it might qualify as a project for students wishing to turn concepts into hardware.
ATIC, based at the Polytechnic campus in east Mesa, promotes partnerships between the university, inventors and businesses for design and development of new products or concepts.
