This report describes the development of a clinical instrument that is intended to assess general inpatient psychopathology among patients who cannot communicate directly with the clinician, either due to a language barrier or other problems with verbal communication. Reliability and validity of the instrument indicate that it can serve a useful purpose as(More)
This paper explores the use of haptic stimuli as non-visual affordances to assist in learnability of bend gestures. We tested 48 haptic Tactons with simulated blind participants to understand what haptic sensation could intuitively map to bend location and direction. We identify that a short, single motor Tacton indicates reliably a bend location, while(More)
This paper explores the novel context of using bend gestures as a primary method of interaction for the blind. Our preliminary study assesses if this more tactile experience could enhance the usability and accessibility of technology for blind users, by comparing bend and touch interactions with simulated blind participants. Both input techniques showed(More)
