 Project objective

In Europe today, an ever-growing population (over 4.3%) disabled by upper limb deficiency are unable to use digital devices. Assistive technology devices have been created to enable people with disabilities to use computer, tablets or smartphones. Conventional input devices allow individuals to control their computers through means other than a standard keyboard or pointing device. However, these solutions present many limitations: they generally require additional software or hardware such as connectors, cameras, etc. Their dependency on a camera put serious limitation on the motion of the user by keeping him stationary. In addition, some are only able to be used with specific operating systems, within a given program or single PC. Moreover, these devices have no sensibility related to disorders of involuntary spasms, such as CP and Parkinson's, or reduced muscle function, such as those suffering from paralysis and amputation. 6Degrees has developed the first Intuitive Motion Controller: Crescent is a light, wearable band that enables the user to control any PC, Tablet or Smartphone with ease, effectively replacing a mouse or finger on a touch screen. It uses wireless communication and requires no added programs. Using a patented, adaptable, self-calibrating and learning algorithm, Crescent is a plug-and-play Bluetooth device that, worn on the upper arm, translates gross arm movement into commands. Crescent provides all-in-one solution, aimed at the Upper Limb deficiency as a whole. 6Degrees seeks funding to conduct a feasibility study to prove technical and commercial viability, conducting an analytical exercise to position the product. The objective is to test the economic viability of the platform among a larger pool of potential clients (user-acceptance), and to assess if the chosen commercialization approach will be conducive of the projected growth on the European level.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
