Establishing Translational Research Pipelines for Smart Devices
The development of a translational research path has traditionally been a haphazard approach, filtering technologies so that the ‘best of breed’ may ultimately succeed. The conversion ratio of brilliant ideas to useful devices remains suboptimal, as many ‘fail to progress’. The reality of...
An Evaluation of Peak Emergency Braking Abilities in the Healthy Population
“When can I return to driving?” is commonly asked by rehabilitating patients in orthopaedic clinics. Without definitive guidelines, patients may wait longer to drive, causing adverse social and economic effects. Determining peak emergency braking abilities in a healthy cohort may enable a better...
Usability testing of platforms for an Alternative Augmentative Communication (AAC) mentorship moduleDownload
The goal of this resource development project was to evaluate content delivery interfaces for presenting an Alternative Augmentative Communication (AAC) Mentorship module in multimedia format (e.g., text, video and images) and test them with typical devices used by individuals who use AAC. A...
Extent of hyoid movement and epiglottis inversion as correlates of dysphagia severity in post-treatment head and neck cancer patientsDownload
Introduction Swallowing is the coordinated effort of several structures, including the hyoid and larynx, to move the bolus (i.e., the food or drink being swallowed) from the mouth, through the throat, and to the stomach. The hyoid is involved in moving the larynx up and forward, while the...
Interactions with animals have long been shown to improve human health through improved mood, increased physical activity, and decreased anxiety and social isolation (Fine, 2015). These effects have been harnessed in healthcare through therapeutic approaches such as animal-assisted therapy (AAT)....
