Dr Sara Demain and I appeared live today on BBC Radio Solent's 'Drive Time' show, and talked about our research on tactile devices for stroke rehabilitation.
Being interviewed by BBC Radio Solent
This follows the a press release earlier in the week, that can be seen on the ECS website or, to give an example, on The Engineer. Our paper, titled 'Design and Qualitative Evaluation of Tactile Devices for Stroke Rehabilitation' will be presented tomorrow (06 April) at the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Assisted Living Conference.
The interview aired during the Steve Harris show, between 16:00-19:00 on 05 April 2011. A clip of the radio interview can be downloaded here (copyright BBC, 2011).

D4 2010 (POLARIS): Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes14th April 2010
This year's D4 System Design Exercise presented a particularly testing challenge to second-year Electronics students, who worked in teams to design and build a portable Mixed Signal Oscilloscope in 11 days. Teams were given precise specifications, for example, the device had to feature 8 digital channels and 1 analogue, have a graphical display, be portable and robust, and able to operate in the field. Pressure on the students was intense as they worked round the clock to design their oscillosco... [more]
