  • Conceptualization of Hand-TaPS to measure the subjective experience of
           dynamic hand orthoses in promoting functional recovery at home after
           stroke

      Authors: Technology; Disability
      Abstract: CONCLUSIONS: Dynamic hand orthoses constitute a special case of AT; the assistance they provide targets therapy, not ADLs. Our work to develop Hand-TaPS provides a clear example of the theoretical difference between rehabilitative and assistive technology and underscores the importance of consideration of how a device is used in its assessment.PMID:34421288 PMC:PMC8375517

  • A mobile phone system to find crosswalks for visually impaired
           pedestrians.

      Abstract: Technol Disabil. 2008 Oct 22;20(3):217-224
      Authors : Shen H, Chan KY, Coughlan J, Brabyn J Urban intersections are the most dangerous parts of a blind or visually impaired pedestrian's travel. A prerequisite for safely crossing an intersection is entering the crosswalk in the right direction and avoiding the danger of straying outside the crosswalk. This paper presents a proof of concept system that seeks to provide such alignment information. The system consists of a standard mobile phone with built-in camera that uses computer vision algorithms to detect any crosswalk visible in the camera's field of view; audio feedback from the phone then helps the user align him/herself to it. Our prototype implementation on a Nokia mobile phone runs in about one second p...

      Abstract: Technol Disabil. 2011;23(2):75-85
      Authors : Yuan S, Tian Y, Arditi A Matching clothes is a challenging task for many blind people. In this paper, we present a proof of concept system to solve this problem. The system consists of 1) a camera connected to a computer to perform pattern and color matching process; 2) speech commands for system control and configuration; and 3) audio feedback to provide matching results for both color and patterns of clothes. This system can handle clothes in deficient color without any pattern, as well as clothing with multiple colors and complex patterns to aid both blind and color deficient people. Furthermore, our method is robust to variations of illumination, clothing rotation and wrinkling. To evaluate the proposed prototype...

      Authors: Technology; Disability
      Abstract: CONCLUSION: The participants in this study indicated that RTLS can provide a solution to some of the challenges that they encounter in the workplace. However, the implementation of new technologies should be done with care and should be integrated into existing ICT systems in order to minimize additional training and posing a burden on the workload.
