|Project Summary||Project Information|
Leukodystrophy is a type of genetic disease in which the myelin sheath within the nervous system degrades, leading to difficulty moving and speaking. The goal of this project is to provide a way for someone with this condition to interact with various forms of media without human assistance. The top priority for this system is providing an interface to entertainment, which will likely take the form of electronic games. The solution will require detecting motions that are comfortable and repeatable for the customer and translating these motions into interactions with electronic media.
Funding for this project was provided by the National Science Foundation's grant for Senior Design Projects to Aid Persons with Disabilities.
