 In 2011, Mary Elizabeth McCulloch spent time as a high school exchange student in Ecuador and volunteered at an special-needs orphanage where several children had cerebral palsy. After seeing the communication difficulties they experienced she developed a concept for a low-cost assistive speech device. She now studies Biomedical Engineering and founded Project Vive, a humanitarian effort to help improve the lives of people with complex communication needs. In doing so, Project Vive is utilizing technology as a catalyst to develop, manufacture, and distribute a patent pending low-cost solution that will help restore one of mankind’s precious inalienable rights -- Speech.
