Augmented Crutches

Digitally Augmenting the Physical Ground Space with Timed Visual Cues for Crutch-Assisted Walking 

Persuasive technologies for physical rehabilitation have been proposed in a number of different health interventions such as post-stroke gait rehabilitation. We propose a new persuasive system, called Augmented Crutches, aimed at helping people to learn how to walk with crutches. People with injuries, or with any sort of mobility problem typically use assistive devices such as crutches, walkers or canes in order to be able to walk more independently.
