GFH 2008 (live) PDwii: Using Novel interfaces
Red Hill Studios collaborated with UCSF School of nursing to develop a set of gestures in patients with Parkinson's Disease (PD) NIH SBIR (NINDS). Three gestures - hip rotation, sit down stand up, reaching. Virtual book spins a Charlie Chaplin book (hip rotate), Clothes mini-game (reahing), Rail car (sit down stand up). The rail car one looks neat in that the rail car will only move forward after standing up then sitting back down - so if you repeat that pattern rhythmically - the rail car will travel faster and smoother.
