Lecturers and usability experts Maikel Putman and Don Blaauw have been added to the student team working on the Repetitive movements research project for the Leo Kannerhuis. Don and Maikel started their work on Monday May 27th. Their short term horizon is Friday July 5th when a working prototype will be finished to present to Regieorgaan Praktijkgericht Onderzoek SIA.
Maikel Putman and Don Blaauw attended the student demo at Strijp-TQ, Eindhoven, on Monday the 20th of May. The student team showed their progress with a prototype working with mock data and explained that a major improvement was made by linking the interface to the existing 'balance meter' tool. The balance meter is a common instrument for professionals working with people in the autistic spectrum. Using the colors red, orange, blue and green the balance meter indicates the various modes and levels of self control that people can experience.
