The Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology (CREATE) is a multidisciplinary translational research and educational initiative of IIT Madras. It was conceived as we began interacting with NGOs and inclusive schools. There is a social need for indigenous development of low cost technologies that serves to address the needs of people with different abilities.
