Innovative boost for students with disability in remote Queensland

As part of the Queensland governments Advance Queensland Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR), Mediasphere and NeoRehab have been awarded funding to develop interactive educational services.

Last week the QLD state government has announced that it will fund two companies to help service students living with disability in remote parts of Queensland.

As part of the Queensland governments Advance Queensland Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR), Mediasphere and NeoRehab have been awarded funding to develop interactive educational services.

Mediasphere’s Powerhouse Connected Living Community allows teachers, therapists and students to interact seamlessly through advanced compression technologies that overcome limited bandwidth issues, which often affect regional areas.

NeoRehab’s EHab system provides outcomes comparable to face-to-face consultation for patients.

Education Minister Grace Grace said that the Queensland government needs to continue to engage in delivering accessible means of education for students living with disability in regional areas of the state.

“We are committed to providing all Queensland students with world-class education opportunities,” Ms Grace said. “It’s really pleasing to see two local companies using cutting-edge technologies to enhance the educational experiences of students with a disability in regional areas.”

Full details of the announcement can be found on the Queensland government’s website.
