The Buzzer Beater

From ATWiki

Abstract

Our client is a young boy with a mitochondrial disease that limits his motor control and dexterity, preventing him from independently performing essential tasks such as lifting, reaching, and holding. The goal of this project is to design a device that encourages the client to participate in therapeutic recreation to improve arm control and reaction time. The Buzzer Beater is a desktop game console that promotes functional arm movement by incorporating six entertainment features that require specific arm actions, such as pushing, spinning, and pulling, and a bonus basketball shot. Each successful action results in visual and auditory rewards to stimulate the user and promote cause-and-effect recognition. The Buzzer Beater game console provides a safe, effective, and entertaining method for our client to develop the arm control needed for daily tasks.
