Werner Remmele welcomes a new member to this Group, which he recently established (see his article on the My Parkinson's page):
Dr Kyle Montague, Associate Professor at Northumbria University and Head of the Inclusive Design & Innovation (IDI) research group.
I first met him when he was developing a system that could eliminate the errors caused by the tremor of PwP when operating a touch device. Among other things, he is currently working on a low-cost wearable platform that can be used to send sensor-based data to a mobile device or control center, but which also allows data to flow in the opposite direction and can therefore be programmed remotely. This makes it possible to distribute new or adapted functionalities to the users very quickly, easily and securely. This flexible device can become an excellent platform for the development of intelligent systems and therefore is of high interest to SIGP@T.
He wants to address critical social problems and challenges by designing and configuring digital technologies that empower individuals and marginalised communities. His work seeks to democratise access to the tools and processes by which we provision technologies and services that shape society.
If you are interested in the Special Interest Group on Parkinson’s and Technology (SIGP@T), please see Werner’s article in My Parkinsons and the planned autumn event on our Events page. You can also complete this form and return it to be kept updated on developments in the Group.
