Enhancing the decoding of functional intention in children with severe disabilities through the use of e-textiles
Assistive Technology - Electronic Textiles
Children with spastic movements often have difficulty expressing their intentions because their spastic movements mask their intended movements. Through the use of sensors embedded into clothing, we hope to be able to pick out the intended movements by these children and allow them to more clearly express their desires. This study will collect movement signals from children while they are wearing these special shirts, and those signals will be analyzed to find differences between the two types of movements.
