Mobile, wearable, and augmented-reality platforms, medical sensors, and other technologies are creating new opportunities to help persons with disabilities perform the activities of daily living. At the same time, these exciting, pervasive-computing technologies also create new opportunities to help doctors and therapists treat patients in the clinic and the home, in both developed and developing countries. Participants in this seminar will choose an assistive or medical application and develop a solution that will have real impact on patients lives.
Possible assistive applications include hearing impairment, cognitive impairment (aphasia, autism spectrum, Parkinson's disease, prosopagnosia), and vision impairment. Other in-scope applications targeted on medical and psychological contexts include dermatology (melanoma detection and diagnosis, jaundice), pulmonary spirometry, physical/occupational therapy (stroke rehabilitation), sports medicine, and health monitoring (blood glucose, EKG, blood oxygenation). Possible hardware platforms include mobile devices, wearable health monitors, augmented reality devices (Microsoft HoloLens, Fove VR), 360-degree cameras (Google), wearable body-cams, and an array of new-to-market medical sensor technology.
