In order to prevent spinal surgery, scoliosis patients are often prescribed to wear a corrective brace to keep the spine from continuing to develop curvature.

Our system attempts to improve compliance with patients by providing them with real-time data of their wear time in a meaningful way.
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.
