During the past several years the Texas Tech University Mechanical Engineering Department has been involved in the design and development of training and assistive devices for handicapped people. This effort has produced devices for individual needs as well as larger scale systems that are used by local schools to provide training and a source of income tax for handicapped clients. This paper describes this program and provides detailed information on four significant projects, the most notable of which is the so-called mechanical chicken, which has received national television coverage through CNN.
