We develop smart/wearable assistive technologies (ATs) for promoting independence for people with disabilities.
Multifunctional intraORal Assistive technology (MORA)
Development of new concept of intra-oral assistive technology for people with high-level spinal cord injuries. We analyze the performance using MORA for various realistic conditions for activities of daily living.
Trace-free Tongue-Controlled Assistive Technology
“we designed and tested a tracer-free tongue-controlled AT based on multiple contact-based optical distance sensors, ambient light sensor, and multi-sensor data fusion algorithm. This new AT will address the Midas touch problem while retaining advantages of the contact-based approach.”
Wireless Multifunctional Wheelchair Interface
“we develop the wearable tracer-free tongue-controlled assistive technology, MORA, that can be utilized with the multifunctional feature using a custom designed wireless wheelchair interface via a smartphone app. .”
Quantitative Assessment of Tongue-Computer Interface
“We designed the Fitts' law and Steering law based tasks on the computer, wheelchair, and virtual reality to evaluate the performance of the users.”
