GLOBAL DESIGN OF ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY
Atlantia was created to help Croí House with their Stroke Rehabilitation program by providing a way for patients to continue their therapy from home after it was no longer absolutely necessary for them to come into the Croí House clinic, but still could use the therapy. The project is now working towards building games which simulate exercises that the patient would play to achieve a goal as part of the game. This allows them to increase both cognitive and physical ability over time. We currently have a working UI and basic game controls and are planning to add more functionality to the exercises and the game.
One of Croí House's programs is an obesity management program that measures patients' waist circumferences over time. Slainte was created to make a device that allows the patient to continue their improvement in waist size at home after the end of the program.
The device uses an Arduino code to track the waist circumference of a patient as a measuring tape is pulled out.
Comhoibriu is a project exploration team that is partnering with Croi House to develop a medication dispenser and alarm to improve medication compliance among Croi House patients.
Croi House has a program where they travel to patients homes to perform echocardiograms. Chompord strives to create a lightweight and easily portable echocardiogram exam bed to be used for travel by technicians across rural Ireland. We hope to provide a comfortable experience for both technicians and patients. The team is currently working with a machinist to create a custom bed made of aluminum.
