I worked with Sara a girl with cerebral palsy. She has a tough time communicating with friends and family as she cannot move, except the slight movement in her thumbs and pointer fingers.MY GOAL
Help Sara utilize the movement in her thumb and pointer fingers to communicate.
Through light feedback we wanted to understand the conscious range of motion Sara has in her pointer finger and thumb.
We built gloves fitted with flex and motion sensors to capture Sara’s range of motion. I had to fine tune the code multiple times to fall within Sara’s range of motion.
When Sara moves her thumb a tune plays. Both hands play different tunes and when Sara moves her right thumb she’s saying “Yes!”
