Colombians are people of great ingenuity, intelligence, but, above all, with a great heart.And Daniele Cuertas from Antioquia is proof of that, as this mechatronics engineer not only dreams of standing out in his professional field, but also craves his talent to be able to help others.
Daniel IV He was not left alone who wanted to help othersbecause he casts all his wisdom in favor of who need it most With support that can meet some of their physical limitations, their quality of life can improve.
As a good researcher, Daniel has a fad, but a very good one, he wants to help improve people’s lives people with disabilitiesAn idea that was born as a project, but is today a great reality Huge effect, application and great results,
This engineer, who never gave up his desire to get the best results of his work in the form of good money, was inspired by an unfortunate family experience To develop an invention that has much current application: student controller,
Pupil Controller by Daniele Cuertas was inspired by an instrument that was made for a great figure of American pop culture one who suffers from disease paralyzed his bodyand that despite his condition allowed him to continue drawing, but with his own eyes,
Daniel communicated with American scientists and became interested in this type of research as a student, and when he became a professional, embarked on the great adventure of producing innovations with social impactBecause before technological development, what matters most to them is the well-being of people, because they believe that scientific progress must always go hand in hand with human and social progress,
Daniel Cuartas created the Disciple Follower, a device that allows him to provide freedom to people with minimal mobilityThis invention allows people with quadriplegia to control the basic functions of their rooms.
“They are glasses that have a conditioned camera so that the wavelength doesn’t affect the eyes. The signals go to a table or computer that analyzes them and knows what action the person wants to take. It connects to a control system that sends a signal to each device”Colombian engineer Daniel Cuertas explains.
This man-made device from Antioquia has the big advantage of being low in cost, so it can be accessed people who don’t have much resourcesAnd thanks to them, Daniel Cuartas was honored Awarded “Innovator of the Year” by MIT Technology Review magazine,
Daniele Cuertas wants to continue to generate life and wellness solutions for those who need it mostSo this Colombian not only leaves his name very high in the world scientific field, but also becomes a great ambassador of Colombia.
