Industry Engagement

The McKechnie Family LIFE Home presents a unique environment for industry partners to work with university faculty and students to advance their product designs. Our advanced facilities support the conduct of research; observation of user interactions; and recording of  usability assessments. We have strong community connections to provide access to research participants across age and disability spectrums and to experts in human factors and clinical research. The collaborative spaces in the LIFE Home serve as co-working spaces and provide opportunities for conferences, meetings, hackathons, and design competitions.
