    OnTrack Newsletter
    June 2018 VOL. 2 No 3
     

    Welcome to the June edition of the Altium OnTrack newsletter!

    In this edition, you will be both impressed and inspired by some very young innovators who are profoundly changing people’s lives by designing and building medical assistive devices. In Design Like a Girl, you will meet Mary Elizabeth McCulloch and learn about her speech-generation device startup, Project Vive. In Makerspace, you’ll read about Dutch students at Delft Technical University and Project March who are making exoskeletons that help paraplegics not only walk but compete in Cybathlon events.

    In the OnTrack video series, David Marrakchi discusses design for assembly best practices. As usual, you’ll find lots of stimulating Brain Food and a bit of Regional News to keep you up to date.

    The OnTrack Podcast continues to grow rapidly and features outstanding guests every week, so please listen in, subscribe, and comment.

    Finally, AltiumLive 2018: Annual PCB Design Summit registration is officially open! Please join us for a jam-packed two or three days of teaching, training, resources, and networking. Space is limited so register early.

    Enjoy and always...stay OnTrack!

    Celebrating Exceptional Women Engineers and Designers
     
    Mary Elizabeth McCulloch studied biomedical engineering at Penn State University. Having been inspired by Ecuadorian orphans with cerebral palsy that had lost their voices, she decided to put her engineering skills to work to develop a low-cost speech generation device. Since then, the Voz Box has won multiple awards and McCulloch has launched a startup called Project Vive with the intent of giving “voices” to people with ALS, cerebral palsy and advanced Parkinson’s disease around the world.
     
     
     
    Highlighting Young Innovators and Students
     
    At the Delft Technical University in the Netherlands, they have several student teams doing incredible technological work as a group called the Dream Teams. The team featured below, Project March, is one of the remarkable teams sponsored by Altium. This team designs and makes an exoskeleton that enables paraplegic athletes to not only walk but to compete in an Olympic-style competition called the Cybathlon. Read on to hear about the impressive and inspiring work of these young innovators.
