QL+ harnesses the creativity and engineering skills of students and faculty at Cal Poly to develop innovative technologies to help our nation’s wounded warriors live, work and play. We accept challenges from wounded active-duty and Veteran military members, intelligence and law enforcement personnel, first responders and others injured in service to America. These challenges become projects at the QL+ Laboratory at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) in San Luis Obispo, California

When we started in 2009, we had to actively seek challenges from those in need of our unique engineering solutions. Today, the requests for our solutions far exceed our funding. By the end of the year, we need to know how many challenges we will be able to fund for the following school year. We need your donation. Our veterans have given so much, and your support will help improve their lives as independent and productive citizens.

An EOD tech, Taylor lost part of all four limbs when he triggered an IED. He has given us three challenges that will benefit him and other vets.

Who We help

Honor a veteran


Help us meet our Vets' challenges. Donate $50 or more and you can publicly honor your chosen Veteran and thank them for their service.

This is the reality for too many Veterans of the United States Armed Forces – those who put their lives on the line to protect our freedom. They return home from battle – but the battle has only just begun.

QL+ engineers develop unique solutions and assistive devices to improve the quality of life of our nation’s wounded warriors. Scroll down to read about the types of injuries that QL+ innovations can address; then make a donation and make a difference!

QL+ Mission:
To foster and generate innovations that aid and improve the quality of life of those injured in the line of duty in service to our country.

Imagine living in a world where it’s a challenge to get out of bed each morning, to clean your teeth or take a shower.

Imagine feeling young, strong and independent, but now struggling to find ways to make the most of your skills, knowledge and experience.

Imagine finding it hard to ride a bike, go hiking, or play with your kids.


Improving Their Quality of Life,

One Veteran
