The September ROC Idea Center Story

The ICU2 Head Support

The ROC Idea Center is a place where ideas can become reality. The ROC Idea Center designs and delivers products that mobilize children and adults with disabilities in less resourced countries.
The ICU2 Head support system is a product in the works that will enable the child to look their friends and family in the eye. Children with disabilities often do not have the ability to sit proudly without support or lift their head to see the world in front of them.

Emmett Smith, a brilliant 13-year-old young man, is working with Wayne Hanson and the rest of the ROC engineering team to do research, test materials, design and build the first prototypes. The product development process is a long and arduous one but well worth it when it makes it possible to deliver these products to children worldwide. Our goal in the ROC Idea Center is to present the first production quality prototype to world renown therapists and professionals at the International Seating Symposium in March of 2019.
