Trent Brown is a rising 5th year senior at the University of Dayton, perusing a bachelor’s in mechanical engineering, two minors in bioengineering and human movement biomechanics, and a master’s in biomechanics. Trent chose to participate in an ETHOS immersion at the HUB because of its mission to empower people in their everyday lives with the help of adaptive devices. Hearing of this opportunity, Trent immediately got exhilarated because the HUB’s mission aligned with his heart’s passion to build the best possible future for people through empowering their movement. When asked about his experience so far, he said, “I have never felt so inspired and passionate about my work until I came to the HUB. When I am here, I get to change people’s lives by giving opportunities to people which others would call traditionally inaccessible.” While at the HUB, Trent has built a multitude of adaptive devices through advanced manufacturing techniques (3-d printing/CAD modeling) such as a leg operating system for a Power Wheels WILD THING, a universal joystick, a steering correction system, an adaptive switch, and more. Taking everything that Trent has learned from the HUB, Trent will travel to Santiago, Chile to teach professors about the processes of 3-D printing to provide cost-effective and efficient prosthetics to lower-income families. Following this experience, Trent will return to UD to finish his master’s degree in biomechanics and human movement.
