A clinical update on the eNHANCE project: Eye tracking control for reaching and grasping in an adolescent Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) population


Disease progression in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), an X-linked genetic condition, leads to loss of ambulation and deterioration in the function of the upper limb (UL). Compensation for UL function is more difficult than loss of ambulation, because of the complexity of UL movements. The poor uptake of current assistive devices is attributed to a gap between users’ needs and design of the technology. The eNHANCE project aims to design an eye tracking controlled prototypic robotic arm support to improve the functional performances of those with DMD.
