aWear: Aged Care Watch
Senior Students - TAS
The aged care sector is constantly growing. As more people move into aged care homes, devices need to be designed to help and assist these residents in their daily lives. Our project is designed to assist and help elderly who forget to take medication and are risk at falling. At the moment, there are no devices which have been specifically designed to assist nurses instead aged care homes have to purchase 500$ smartwatches. We plan to bring this price drastically down and cover all the needs of aged care homes. This project consists of two parts, a physical watch which the elderly will wear, and an online service to monitor and get alerts from every watch. The system will be able to alert nurses when a resident needs help, show medication reminders, detect if a resident has left to home unattended and detect falls.

SpiderHouse
Undergraduate Tertiary Students - TAS
SpiderHouse is an online spider phobia treatment that combines technology with exposure therapy to create a unique form of treatment for people affected by a fear of spiders. This solution is unique as it utilizes virtual reality as a means of creating a realistic yet safe environment for exposure therapy to occur, as well as being available online for general access. The treatment is also administered through a game, making it stimulating and different to traditional forms of therapy of treatment of phobias. Developed with input from doctors of psychiatry, SpiderHouse aims to be effective while avoiding creating a harmful experience. SpiderHouse includes a treatment builder which allows psychiatrists to create custom levels for patients, meaning that it is changeable and allows for research elements to be present. For example data is collected and stored, custom levels provide custom treatments, and statistics for levels are generated when completed.
