  • The 2010 da Vinci Awards is accepting nominations - It your timeto be recognized.

    Dear Biomch-L subscribers

    The 2010 da Vinci Awards(r) is now accepting nominations.

    These awards recognize the most innovative adaptive and assistive
    technologies that enable equal access and opportunity for all people,
    regardless of ability. These innovations play an important role in
    helping people overcome physical limitations.

    Since their inception, the yearly da Vinci Awards has become a
    prestigious international symbol of recognition. The awards honor

    of products that can benefit all people, regardless of ability.

    If you know an individual or organization developing products whose
    outcomes are in line with any of the Universal Design Principles, we
    encourage you to nominate them for an award. Your nominations can help
    bring new enabling innovations to the masses.
