Professor Dr Raziq Yaqub, Associate Professor of the Alabama A&M Graduate School: “Topics in Adaptive Designs for Accessibility: Wireless Shifting Mounts for Handcycles and Trikes and PTSD Detection Device.” Wireless Shifting Mounts for Handcycles and Trikes Background: Adaptive cycling provides freedom to individuals facing a wide range of physical disabilities; not only does it provide a means to recreate and stay active, but it is also a source of transportation for those that have lost the ability to drive. While there are many different styles of adaptive bicycles, such as upright handcycles, recumbent handcycles, recumbent trikes, tandem trikes, and more, many adaptations are added to create a better user experience and further reduce barriers. PTSD Detection Device Background: America’s VetDogs provides enhanced mobility and renewed independence to veterans, active-duty service members, and first responders with disabilities, allowing them to once again live with pride and self-reliance. While the service dogs are trained to support their owners when they exhibit PTSD symptoms visibly or audibly, the ideal situation is to stop the episode before it happens. America’s VetDogs in partnership with BAE Systems is seeking to develop a device that monitors a spike in an individual’s heart rate and blood pressure before a PTSD episode begins. The device should alert the service dog so it can in-turn provide the veteran with comfort.
