• Dr. Willkomm transforming signs into devices that help people with limited mobility

    Campaign signs arrive by the truckload at the University of New Hampshire campus where Willkomm is a clinical associate professor. Along with her occupational therapy students, she’ll transform the signs into devices that help people with limited mobility do everything from fold clothes to eat a meal to manipulate an iPad.
