Seffi Udi: Designing Inspiration

“Creation is the meaning of life, especially for me. The fact that I am paralyzed from the neck down only emphasizes it more. And the fact there is software that allows me to carry out anything I can dream of, simply and quickly, is everything for me.” – Seffi Udi

Seffi Udi decided that he had two choices after an accident left him paralyzed from the neck down: lie in bed and cry about his fate or to make the most out of his life. Udi quickly decided that lying in bed was not an option.

Udi was introduced to SOLIDWORKS after he was accepted to the Industrial Design faculty at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. Since learning SOLIDWORKS in 2011, Udi has designed amazing products, including a mouth-operated mouse and a Kindle reader that uses breathing to turn pages. He even found the time to redesign his home for more accessibility.
