Personal bio
David L. Jaffe received his Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan in 1970 and his Masters degree in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University in 1973. Dave was a Research Biomedical Engineer at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System's Rehabilitation Research and Development Center. At the VA his interests were designing, developing, testing, and bringing to market microcomputer-based devices for veterans with disabilities including communication, mobility, and information systems. He has worked on several VA assistive technology research projects including an innovative wheelchair interface for individuals with quadriplegia, an electro-mechanical fingerspelling hand that serves as a communication device for people who are deaf/blind, a system that explores virtual reality techniques to train individuals with gait deficits to improve their walking, and a project that employs a computer-based simulation to assess and improve the driving ability of individuals after brain injury. Dave currently teaches ENGR110/210 Perspectives in Assistive Technology which explores the broad spectrum of issues surrounding the design, development, and use of technology that benefits people with disabilities and seniors. In addition to organizing this course, he currently contributes to the definition of quarterly course projects in ME218 Smart Product Design, is a project coach in ME113 Mechanical Engineering Design, and mentors students working on assistive technology projects.
