Featured Projects

Early detection of symptoms is of critical importance in diagnosing and treating cognitive dysfunction. One important instrument utilized for detecting early signs of cognitive dysfunction is the Clock-Drawing Test. In this test, patients are asked to draw a clock face at a certain time, and are evaluated on how well they perform this task. At present, analysts must individually administer and assess each test a person completes.
Equipping students with disabilities with the right accommodation helps them experience greater independence and self-esteem, which set them up for success. However, at present, many barriers inhibit these students from obtaining the right accommodation. This project seeks to explore these barriers, and to build a platform that helps students with disabilities overcome them, by providing them easy access to assistive technology and a chance to interact with peers and experts, thus building a supportive community around them.
Agility handlers need a reliable, accurate way to measure and monitor athlete activity to help reduce the high incidence of injury in agility dogs. Through this project, we hope to help develop a canine-wearable system to recognize agility activity in order to lay the groundwork for creating a user interface that can measure training workload, speed, fatigue, and other parameters to evaluate relation to injury risk and target injury prevention strategies.
