What is Global Student Innovation Challenge for Assistive Technology (gSIC-AT)?
The Global Student Innovation Challenge for Assistive Technology (gSIC-AT) is an annual event held at the International Convention on Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology (i-CREATe). It provides a platform to encourage students from all over the world to compete one another in developing creative and innovative devices or solutions to improve the
quality of living of elderly and people with disability. It showcases the extraordinary talents of these students while providing them the opportunity to work with clients and clinicians to develop these innovative ideas.
There are 2 categories in this challenge :
Students are expected to apply User-Centered Design process to produce a solution that ‘make life easier’ for its users or enhance the user experience (UX) or improves the quality of professional rehabilitation practice. The solution may or may not be technology based.
Students are expected to apply principles in Engineering and Information Technology to design and implement Assistive & Rehabilitation Technology solution to address the issues/problems faced by the needy, their caregivers and clinicians. The solution must have engineering or technological component(s).
