MANHATTAN — A Kansas State University engineering team is developing a technology collection that can make a big difference in the lives of children with developmental disabilities.
The team’s projects so far have addressed around-the-clock technology: bed-based sensors to track child breathing and heart rates; wearable sensors to track child behaviors; and designs that can improve the quality of life for paraeducators who work with these children.
Now the team has received a three-year $400,000 National Science Foundation grant to expand these ideas and better establish a link between nighttime wellness and daytime learning and behavior. The project, “UNS: GARDE: Research to quantify the health and development of children with disabilities around the clock,” involves several Kansas State University engineering researchers who are combining their expertise.
Don Gruenbacher and Medhat M. Morcos, faculty members of electrical and computer engineering at Kansas State University, have been recognized as two of the 25 top professors of electrical engineering at OnlineEngineeringPrograms.com.
