T

he seven projects involve designing and developing assistive technology for people with Ataxia and physical and occupational therapists. For the first three projects, we have two different universal cup holders and a bowl holder that will aid patients with Ataxia who are suffering from kinetic tremors. The fourth is a cup that will aid them in drinking.  The fifth is a universal cup lid that will work similarly to the cup holders. The sixth project is universal portable weights  The seventh project is a glove that effectively helps reduce hand tremors and an A\R MIXED REALITY game that simulates real-life situations in a patient's therapy session.
