Technology serving Humanity: engineering can save and improve lives. Rehabilitation engineering allowed Adrian Anantawan to become an acclaimed violinist.
Anantawan spoke and performed at Clarkson on February 22. He is a key proponent of the disabled arts, as he was born without a right hand. Rehabilitation engineers designed a prosthetic device that enabled him to begin playing the violin.
He is a national spokesperson for the War Amps of Canada, and the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehab Center. As an educator, he is a faculty member of the National Arts Centre (Canada) Young Artists Program, teaching in its pre-college division since 2008.
Active within Canadian media, his documentary "Adrian Anantawan: The Story Behind the Notes" is currently being broadcast across the country by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC)
