Improving lives through technology
Individuals with disabilities and their families face significant hurdles to quality of life and independence. The Life Quality Solutions Incubator at the Center for Disability Services (LQSI) began in 2018 as an effort to further pursue the Center’s mission to make life better for those with disabilities.
LQSI is the research and development arm of the Center, focused on applied research and product development. Projects include practical tools and products that provide comfort and enable individuals with disabilities and the aging to experience and achieve more in life.
Located in Watervliet, New York, the incubator’s prototyping and fabrication facility is staffed by engineers, fellows, and volunteers. The group of individuals who spend time conducting research and developing products aligned to the incubator’s mission includes students and engineering fellows from Capital Region research institutes.
