On the next episode of Project Vive Upgrade My Ride we have a guest-star that we are very excited to announce. Our guest-star Aaron is sixteen-years-old with cerebral palsy. On this episode of Project Vive Upgrade My Ride, Aaron gets a new set of controls and they are seriously cool! The Project Vive Team had a great time working with Aaron and getting him all set up with his new ride. Project Vive’s DIY mount was used to hold our Voz Box system that allows him to control his speech generating tablet with a knee switch. We also installed a “gas pedal” for Aaron to ride around showing off his cool controls. Of course, we made Aaron’s Voz Box blue in honor of his favorite color.
Project Vive is dedicated to creating a low cost assistive technology that empowers people with disabilities to live out their life goals. We have been able to do this with our low-cost Voz Box system which will give Aaron and others the ability to speak freely. This is especially exciting for our guest-star Aaron who could be the next big stand-up comedian, because he loves telling jokes, with a particular specialty in knock-knock jokes!
