, said: "This is not to replace face-to-face contact, but it means people can be monitored more often.
The assistive technology team
includes the traditional disciplines, the client, the family, the funding source, and the community in which the consumer lives.
GSPK Design in collaboration with The Assistive Technology Team
at Barnsley Hospital, The Centre for Assistive Technology & Connected Healthcare at the University of Sheffield and the NIHR Devices for Dignity Healthcare Technology Co-operative (D4D) would develop on work from stage one and further develop a unique wireless smart switch to assist people who have acute brain injury or severe disabilities using tiny electrical signals produced by muscles (electromyography, EMG) to engage with their environment.
