AUTOMATICALLY SENSING FECAL INCONTINENCE IN BED
Not Available The purpose of the proposed project is to develop an internet based job opportunity network and support systems for the disabled. The web site will include three main areas; employment, reference materials, and avenues for social support. The site will be compliant to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines in order to be compatible with assistive devices. It is anticipated that a larger number of disabled persons would be able to be employed if they could work from their home. The job database, resume posting, and interviewing forums will focus on the category of jobs that can be performed from a remote location. The reference area will allow the user to search through products and services. Users may also post their products or services for sale. The social support area will provide opportunities for discussion through chat rooms and pen pal mail, delivery of special video training or cultural events, classified ad postings and entertainment. The web site will be designed for use by persons with a variety of disabilities. For individuals that are homebound, this provides an exciting outlet for interaction and growth. Phase I will develop and launch the website. Phase II will focus on advanced features.
