Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Everett Hills is involved in the intersection of assistive technology to meet the needs of persons with disabilities, the development of "smart" rehabilitation tools to enhance functional recovery, and the application of engineering concepts for designing tools that can be used in the clinical setting for improving delivery of medical care. Working closely with Penn State College of Engineering's Learning Factory, Dr. Hills has sponsored more than 40 projects that link engineering students with persons with disabilities to create working prototypes that enhance the quality of life for these individuals while demonstrating potential promise for further commercial development.
