Parents' engagement in their children's education is key to children's academic success and social development. For many parents in the U.S., engagement is still a struggle partly due to a lack of communication and community-building tools that support the broader ecology of parenting, or parental ecology. Although current technologies have the potential to create opportunities to improve parental engagement, little is known about the impact of existing technology's design onthe parental ecology.
This project concerns the analysis and design of a wearable technology garment intended to aid with the instruction of ballet technique to adult beginners. A phenomenological framework is developed and used to assess physiological training tools. Following this, a garment is developed that incorporates visual feedback inspired by animation techniques that more directly convey the essential movements of ballet.
In order to prevent spinal surgery, scoliosis patients often are prescribed to wear a corrective brace to keep the spine from continuing to develop curvature. While largely successful if followed, many patients do not comply with wearing their brace for the correct amount of time. Our system attempts to improve compliance with patients by providing real-time data of their wear time in a meaningful way.
