IIAM (Important Information About Me): A Novel Communication Tool for Children with Neurodevelopmental Disabilities


IIAM logoIn 2010, an intelligent 27-year-old man with cerebral palsy and limited ability to communicate his needs was admitted to a hospital for a surgical procedure. No one at the hospital asked him about his capacity to make decisions. Although fully continent, he was unable to communicate this, and was placed in diapers until discharge.

The Cooling Cure

by Kristina
August 2, 2013
A collaboration between doctors and engineers leads to an innovative, low-cost medical device that may help prevent cerebral palsy in developing countries.

As far back as 1000 BC, ancient civilizations used a primitive, but ingenious, cooling system using nothing more than clay pots, water, and the natural cooling power of evaporation to keep food cool. Could this same low-tech cooling system be used to prevent brain damage and cerebral palsy in developing countries? A team from Kennedy Krieger and Johns Hopkins recently developed an inexpensive medical device meant to do exactly that.
