contribution of S., who will be graduated soon: this technology not only
assists him in the study process, but also in life outside university by the
use of a computer.
In the first phase the project will focus
on S., after developing and validating the prototype , parametric models of the
tool will be available which will be adapted to the individual anthropometric
characteristics of future users.
S. will personally test the developed tool
in real life situations, giving feedbacks that will allow the developers to
improve the prototype.
The project development approach is
