During our research, we found out that only one-third of people finish their physical therapy due to reasons such as money and commute issues. Our team will be creating an accessible and affordable way to help people with chronic pain by exploring a physiotherapy intervention that users could access within the comfort of their homes. Our solution will engage people in a fun and innovative way. The aim is to also motivate users to continue their exercises, even after they feel better.
Students in Georgia Tech's interdisciplinary MS in Human-Computer Interaction program do multiple group class projects, and a capstone individual project. Some projects are presented as part of other labs listed here; others are showcased in the MS-HCI Project Lab.
The two-year program spans four schools: Industrial Design; Interactive Computing; Literature, Media and Communications (Digital Media Program); and Psychology. Approximately 50 new students enroll each fall semester.
