Full Description

CATEA is a multidisciplinary research center devoted to enhancing the lives of people with all levels of ability and functional limitations through the development and application of assistive and universally designed technologies. Rather than focusing on disability, seeing people as “disabled,” CATEA believes that the limitations of current technologies and the design of the built environment account for the difference between any individual’s potential and his or her ability to perform activities and participate in society.

CATEA’s work is organized under four laboratories: theRehabilitation Engineering And Applied Research Laboratory (REAR Lab), the Accessible Workplace Laboratory, the Enabling Environments Laboratory (EE lab), and the Accessible Education and Information Laboratory.

CATEA staff also teach courses in the College of Architecture’s Industrial Design and Architecture programs, as well as in Prosthetics and Orthotics. They are affiliated with the Health Systems Institute in the College of Engineering; Awarehome Research Initiative in the College of Computing; and ROSS (Responsive Objects, Surfaces and Spaces), a collaboration between Literature Communiciation and Culture and the Industrial Design Program.
