After initial experiments in 1916, it wasn’t until George Klein’s invention in 1953 that this assistive technology device became a reality. Originally, Klein and his team invested in this important assistive technology to aid veterans returning injured from World War II. Klein considered the project to be the most rewarding of his career. In the end, he developed a unique package of technologies that are still features of his invention. The prototype of his invention for individuals with disabilities was kept at the Smithsonian in Washington for years, but returned to Canada in 2004 and is now part of the Canada Science and Technology Museum collection in Ottawa. What did George Klein invent?   


This week's trivia question: 

In a new study, published last month in Pediatrics, researchers at the Center for Injury Research and Policy and Central Ohio Poison Center at Nationwide Children's Hospital investigated the characteristics and trends of out-of-hospital medication errors for this disorder among people younger than 20 years old reported to U.S. poison centers from 2000 through 2021. According to the study, the annual number of medication-related errors for this disorder increased almost 300% from 2000 to 2021. The increase in the reported number of medication errors is consistent with the findings of other studies reporting an increase in the diagnosis of this disorder among U.S. children during the past two decades. What is the disorder?
