We love Collaborating with others to educate and spread our message
In recent years, we have worked with local elementary, middle, and high schools to engage in STEM education and outreach. We have also partnered with nonprofit organizations, museums, hospitals, gyms, and more to design assistive devices and to educate others about assistive technology and the limb different community.
This virtual 5K is hosted by eNable Lowell and the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) and is open to all! Participants will receive a shirt and a 3D printed medal with their name on it. Students at Umass Lowell pay $5 to enter, and Faculty/Outside Participants pay $10. The 5K is happening on April 17th, 2021 from 8 am to 8 pm! All you have to do is either upload your progress from a fitness app onto social media, tagging @uml.bmes or @enablelowell, or email your progress to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Unified health and performance (unified HP)
Unified HP is a gym located in Lancaster, MA that eNable has collaborated with in the past to design or modify gym equipment to make exercise and training more intuitive and simple. From their website, "We originally started Unified Health and Performance as a high-level strength and conditioning facility that would also give our Special Olympics athletes an opportunity to become the strongest version of themselves. We wanted to create an environment that was mutually beneficial for athletes with and without disabilities. What has transpired since July of 2016 has been nothing short of extraordinary. We’ve been able to work with nearly 500 athletes and have witnessed impressive physical feats, regardless of disability." Members from eNable Lowell have assisted Unified HP by brainstorming, prototyping, and designing assistive devices to be used by gym members to help them achieve their fitness goals.

design museum boston
In August and September 2019, eNable Lowell displayed our assistive devices and educated the public about our organization with the Design Museum Boston through their We Design: Mobile Exhibition. Members from our team attended a pop-up Mobile Exhibition in Kendall Square in Cambridge, MA and a Bespoke Bodies Reception at Brigham and Women's Hospital focusing on the Bespoke Bodies exhibit.

The Helping Hands Foundation assists families with children that have upper limb differences and provides support. From their website, "We have as a continuous goal, to provide support, share experiences and supply information to parents, affected children and their siblings. We choose to focus on the individual child and the challenges they may face. We emphasize their abilities, not their disabilities." eNable Lowell attends outreach events organized by Helping Hands each year to talk to families and educate them about the resources we can provide.

eNable Lowell visits many schools to educate students about opportunities in STEM and to teach students about 3D printing, design, engineering, problem solving, and the limb different community. In the past, we have attended local elementary, middle, and high schools to teach students about our organization and to inspire interest and engagement with STEM education. We have also worked with local high schools by providing engineering and assistive device projects for students. If you would like eNable Lowell to visit your school, collaborate with curriculum and projects, or if you would like to learn more, please contact us!
