Accessibility and Universal Design

Each year, the Polytechnic University of Catalonia proposes a more or less similar accessibility project allowing the engineering students to make their best to help people by creating devices. In this one, the accessibility team must find how to build a device for two clients, who are two boys using wheelchairs. The best solutions must be found because the clients will live with them during a long time, even all their childhood.
