V-LINC connects people with disabilitities to engineers and student engineers addressing real problems facing those who want more independence. Many students interact with a disabled person for the first time through V-LINC's program, a real learning experience for the students and engineers who volunteer.

Customized Assistive Technology Services
We design and build customized assistive technology (AT)—or modify existing technology—to enable you or your family member/client/employee/student to live, work, and play more independently. Assistive technology is not one-size-fits-all. When commercially available assistive technology does not meet one’s needs or when the technology needed does not exist, V-LINC creates it. Our volunteer engineers, carpenters, machinists, nurses, and physical and occupational therapists work together to invent technology that increases our clients’ independence. Many of our engineering volunteers are now mentoring high school and college classes in engineering as they take on our projects to help people with disabilities attain independence and a higher quality of life, in their community, work place or school.
