Our clients, Sam and Clare, have cognitive disabilities that weaken their judgment skills. They began working at Durham Exchange Club Industries (DECI) in the hopes of overcoming vocational barriers in the local community. Their employment is contingent on their ability to carry out their job effectively and efficiently. We designed and developed a device and a workflow that enables Sam and Clare to perform one of their tasks (capping tin boxes) at a faster rate with higher accuracy, thus providing stability in their employment.
