Project Description

A project that is developing tools for people with multiple sclerosis. Many of them are no longer able to control their hands, are not used to operate a computer, and are often afraid of it. The project is helping clients to learn about scheduled therapies thanks to Microsoft Azure Face ID and its aim is to motivate the handicapped to use the computer for more everyday tasks, like shopping. This is further enhanced by therapist’s assistance and alternative communication devices that allow immobile people to control a computer, e.g. by voice, head movement, eyes, or blowing into a small stick (MouthMouse). The team hopes to receive tips from experts during the hackathon and develop the project to make even bigger impact for severly handicapped people with multiple sclerosis.
