DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - A unique partnership between a local college, hospital, and a special needs workshop could lead to a medical breakthrough for stroke patients.
The program called MONCO is backed by a six-figure grant and designed to give the disabled new job skills.
Engineering students at Cedarville University have gotten involved by designing tools to help the disabled work better.
Their improved technologies will assist in how they can actually function with the machinery that manufactures the dog biscuits that they prepare for sale.
The project will help not only the disabled work, but Kettering Health Network wants to incorporate the methods to help stroke patients who are somewhat similarly challenged with their motor skills.
