EmBrace: Scoliosis Brace for the 21st Century

I worked as the leader of the Human Computer Interaction team for a semester, with masters students across mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, sensing, and design disciplines. I was in charge of dissecting the problem with outdated Scoliosis brace technology. As a case study to guide the project, we met with a 13 year old girl, her parents, and her brace clinician. The HCI group designed baseline and visionary scenarios and coordinated with hardware, front-end, back-end, and sensing teams to unify product scope.
