Healthy Communities are Inclusive Communities: 2 Activities

Healthy Communities are Inclusive Communities: 2 Activities Tagged with:

Last week I spent two days with the National Center on Health, Physical Activity and Disability (NCHPAD) for an orientation as part of their new advisory panel. I am excited to serve as a bridge between NCHPAD’s work and the broader healthy out-of-school time movement. You might remember two of our past blog articles that included NCHPAD resources, 3 Steps to Including Kids with a Disability and Tips and Resources for Inclusive Physical Activity.

Healthy afterschool environments should be inclusive afterschool environments, right?

The National AfterSchool Association Standards for Healthy Eating and Physical Activity specifically encourage programs to train staff to “adapt physical activity opportunities to include children and youth at all levels of athletic availability and those with physical, sensory or intellectual disability.”

Robotic Muscles: The Future of Physical Therapy?

Robotic Muscles: The Future of Physical Therapy? Tagged with:

 

The field of robotics is always expanding and evolving, with many researchers working constantly toward more lifelike robots who function like humans. Earlier this year, news broke that Japanese robotics experts at the Tokyo Institute of Technology had successfully created a robot that was equipped with multifilament artificial muscles. These robotic muscles work in the same way ours do, by contracting and relaxing—just less efficiently. While this robot offers us a look into the future of robotic development, other breakthroughs have proved more immediately useful. For example, the soft robots that look nothing like humans, but also mimic our muscle movements.
