The latest smartphone, car, or computer often has more features than most consumers need or understand. While it’s great to have a bevy of features in a product, we need to first look at its function. This episode explores the innovative work created by the talented team at CanAssist at the University of Victoria. As they work every day to fulfill their mission to help people with disabilities improve their quality of life with a focus on independence and inclusion. Sometimes the simpler the technology, the more significant the impacts.

Special thanks to Robin Syme, Executive Director of CanAssist at the University of Victoria for her contribution to this episode.
