The Rehabilitation Engineering curriculum has been offered in high school technology classes. The goal is to create
a shovel that can be used efficiently by a one-armed person. The design of implements for disabled individuals requires the standard engineering design process, but with a human element. This curriculum incorporates physiology, engineering, and CAD technology.
High school students investigate how the body is like a machine and how able-bodied individual perform certain tasks. Physical attribute, such as range of motion and muscle use to perform a similar task. The tool of choice for this curriculum is a garden shovel.
