A couple of weeks ago Tom Jakobs, President of InvoTek, talked with students at Arkansas Tech University's College to Career Conference. A few days later Diane Jakobs PhD, VP of Operations at InvoTek, spoke to engineering students at the University of Arkansas about the importance of cross-disciplinary training in the engineering fields. It is always a pleasure to be around enthusiastic young people at impressive universities!

Scott Porter, who works with us at InvoTek, recently found out that he will be one of eight handcyclists racing in the Boston Marathon this year! Way to go Scott! There will be 37,000 runners in the race and we bet that not one of them can keep up with Scott. :-) The picture of Scott (above) was taken after he finished the Miami Marathon in January, 2013.
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
Over the past year I've had the opportunity to experience the power of sports for people with disabilities. In August we submitted our first SBIR research proposal related to adaptive sports with our partners at Lakeshore Foundation. Keep your fingers crossed -- we're breaking new ground on helping people who have quadriplegia to exercise. --Tom
