The Department of Mechanical Engineering, together with the Departments of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering-DEIB and the Department of Design, is among the winners of 2019 Polisocial Award, the initiative launched by Politecnico di Milano in 2013, aimed at supporting research projects with focus on social engagement.
This year’s edition was targeted at promoting the societal impact of sport: ACCEPT, one of the seven awarded projects that will be funded through 5X1000, is an adaptive climbing wall equipped with sensors for analyzing the rehabilitation progress of children with Cerebral Palsy, designed to reduce inequalities and promote health and well-being. The project team was composed by Alessandro Colombo (DEIB) scientific coordinator, Francesco Ferrise project manager, Marita Canina (DESIGN), Marco Domenico Santambrogio (DEIB), Vittoria Roiati, Francesca Fedeli, PlayMore and FASI (Federazione Arrampicata Sportiva Italiana). The award ceremony was held at the presence of Rector Ferruccio Resta, Andrea Zorzi and Giulia Ghiretti, paralympic swimmer and PoliMi student, at Off Campus San Siro, the first off-site location recently launched in Milan by our Insitution, where Politecnico will combine education, research and co-design activities with local organizations.
