Biomedical engineering students: making a difference. Children with special needs sometimes require diapering well into their adult years, which can mean a lot of strain on the backs of parents who will be doing all the changing. But thanks to a team of biomedical engineering undergraduates — Ben Smith, Lisle Blackbourn, Brett Napiwocki and Michael Kapitz — one Wisconsin family's daily routine is considerably easier thanks to a custom changing table designed by the students as their spring 2011 semester project in BME 201: Biomedical Engineering Design.
