Advanced technologies are more accessible than ever. Homes are loaded with the Internet of Things, 3D printing is now a household term, and custom printed circuit boards can be ordered as easily as vacation photos. We’re excited by what these technologies enable us to do, and our passion is using them to enable others.

DireenTech has been turning its focus toward adaptive technologies

On September 26, 2017 — hosted by Furniture Row Racing and Dover International Speedway at the Monster Mile in Dover, Delaware — we demonstrated a wheelchair modified to be driven by those with quadriplegia. Working with cadet teams at the Air Force Academy, and with sponsorship from FalconWorks, Falci Adaptive Biosystems and nuMotion, we developed a system to control the wheelchair donated by Quantum and nuMotion with head movement alone.

We’re adapting a race car!

In 2018, we’ve been invited back this October to the Dover International Speedway, and we’re excited to continue our work with Falci Adaptive Motorsports and Furniture Row Racing, working on a modified version of Martin Truex’s 78 car, to be driven by someone with quadriplegia.
