Difficulties in executing daily living tasks hamper the quality of life of many individuals with cognitive impairments who are otherwise physically mobile. With sufficient and appropriate support on the job, many people with developmental disabilities and cognitive impairments are capable of participating in the world of work to various levels. Kinect is(More)
A challenge to individuals with cognitive impairments in wayfinding is how to remain oriented, recall routines, and travel in unfamiliar areas in a way relying on limited cognitive capacity. According to psychological model of spatial navigation and the requirements of rehabilitation professionals, a novel wayfinding system is presented with an aim to(More)
A novel wayfinding system is presented with an aim to increase workplace and life independence for cognitive-impaired patients such as people with traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, mental retardation, schizophrenia, and Alzheimerpsilas disease. According to psychological model of spatial navigation and the requirements of rehabilitation professionals,(More)
In this paper, we present a wayfinding prototype system based geo-coded QR codes for individuals with cognitive impairments. The design draws upon the cognitive models of spatial navigation and consists of wayfinding devices and a tracking system. Compared to the sensor network approach, it is easy to deploy because of low cost and short time frame. The(More)
BACKGROUND A challenge to individuals with cognitive impairments in wayfinding is how to remain oriented, recall routines, and travel in unfamiliar areas in a way relying on limited cognitive capacity. While people without disabilities often use maps or written directions as navigation tools or for remaining oriented, this cognitively-impaired population is(More)
Assistive technology so far has been focusing on promoting greater independence for people with disabilities by enabling them to perform tasks on a personal basis. Assistive technology that leverages networks of caregivers, who may be nomadic or even remain on the go constantly, has not been developed into useful services or even explored systematically. In(More)
This study assessed the possibility of training two individuals with cognitive impairments using location-based task prompting system in a supported employment program. This study was carried out according to an ABAB sequence in which A represented the baseline and B represented intervention phases. Data showed that the two participants significantly(More)
A challenge to individuals with cognitive impairments in workplaces is how to remain engaged, recall task routines, and transition autonomously across tasks in a way relying on limited cognitive capacity. A novel task prompting system is presented with an aim to increase workplace and life independence for people with traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy,(More)
