RESNA's Student Design Competition has, for over 30 years, showcased creative and innovative assistive technology designs that help people with disabilities function more independently. Student teams represent a wide variety of disciplines including mechanical, electrical, and biomedical engineering; computer information science; architecture; and physical and occupational therapy. Semifinalist teams receive an all-expense paid trip to the RESNA Annual Conference, where the final judging takes place. SDC winners have frequently moved on to become leaders in the field.
