UIST 2016 – Best Paper Award


Joanne Leong presented our paper “proCover: Sensory Augmentation of Prosthetic Limbs Using Smart Textile Covers” at the UIST 2016 conference in Tokyo. It received the “Best Paper Award.” proCover is a smart textile wearable for prostheses in the form of a sensing sock and vibration armband, which was created and tested in consultation with lower-limb amputees. It showed the potential for smart textiles as a way to retroactively enhance prostheses with sensory capabilities. Smart textile cover could be used in many applications and offers a useful, wearable solution as an input device.
