The Centre for Assistive Technology and Connected Healthcare (CATCH) is currently running two studies; to help develop and then evaluate the performance of Emego.
The first study will involve a small number of potential end users – individuals with severe physical disabilities who use assistive technology such as a communication aid. This study will allow these users to trial the device and take part in interviews to feed back into the design of the device as GSPK build the final product.
The second, larger scale, trial is planned to evaluate how well the device performs – in other words how well it detects muscle activations and how well it could be used by individuals with severe physical disabilities as a control method.
