J-SHOES

 

These are weight-bearing shoes that analyse and verify that the correct weight distribution exists between both feet for proper standing posture. They communicate with each other via bluetooth and transmit all data to a smartphone Android app. The J-Shoes app can also be used to adjust the shoe settings on the fly.  Read more...

LASER GUN & WEIGHTBEARING PLATFORM

 

A standing platform that analyses Julian's weight distribution between both feet. If he stands correctly the platform wirelessly activates a laser gun which can be shot at the target. If his balance is incorrect, the laser gun is wirelessly deactivated. The gun also deactivates if it is turned from the target. The target has 15 sensors which randomly turn on or off as well as a digital score tally.  Read more...

MARBLE RUN

 

Because the laser gun was inappropriate for Julian's abilities the same standing platform that analyses Julian's weight distribution between both feet was used. But instead of a laser gun...the platform communicates with a marble run. When standing posture is good...marbles roll. When standing posture is bad, the marbles disappear down shoots! Read more...

SPLINT BOX

 

A device attached to Julian's splint that analyses the angle of his calf. If the angle of his calf is not perpendicular to the ground for more than an accepted amount of time, the device vibrates to remind him to stand flat.
