CP dancer helps scientists develop new technology!
About a week ago I posted a link about a dancer with CP who is making a movie about his experience of becoming a dancer. They updated the site about the movie with a new clip from the movie here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...y/posts/120893 This new clip has to do with how the dancer with CP is helping scientists develop new technology designed to help people with Cerebral Palsy improve their gait. It looks like some real cool stuff. It kinda reminds me of this thing I saw that people use to treat club foot where the muscles are stimulated by a machine so the foot doesn't drag. I like how the scientist said "assistive rather than executive". Certainly a great idea. Especially if children are going to be using the technology, they won't feel like they are being forced or that the technology is out of their control.
