Huy Nguyen

Werribee, Victoria

Engineer, social entrepreneur

Having contracted polio as a baby in Vietnam, Huy has used a wheelchair since age five. Now an advocate for people with disabilities, this systems engineer has developed a platform that trains disability support workers using a virtual 3D environment. Accessible on mobile devices and websites, Enabler features virtual intelligent characters with disabilities that support workers can interact with to learn from and test their skills. It can also simulate emergency and challenging scenarios to prepare workers. This grant will allow Huy to roll out the system to at least 5,000 users, helping to save disability organisations money and provide easily-accessible training.
