Are you interested in assistive robotics research?
I am a Ph.D. candidate in the UMBC Computer Science program and have Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), a neuromuscular disorder that affects the control of muscle movement.
My goal is to develop robotics aids to increase independence for people with physical disabilities and seniors. As part of my research, I am conducting a survey on attitudes toward robotic aids and how they may improve the quality of life for those with physical disabilities and seniors.
If you are interested in the advancement of assistive robotics, you can help me with my research by participating in our survey.
Participation is voluntary and anonymous. The participant must be 18 years or older. You can access the survey here: https://goo.gl/H9lLGQ.
This study has been reviewed and approved by the UMBC Institutional Review Board (IRB). A representative of that Board, from the Office.for Research Protections and Compliance, is available to discuss the review process or my rights as a research participant.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
