Seed Grant Awardee: Kenan Song

This proposal aims to develop a fiber sensor that enables in-situ detection of motion, temperature, and sweat level through multi-layer design, namely: motion detection in the core layer, temperature detection in the middle layer, and, moisture detection in the outer layer.

In this project we propose immersive biofeedback for spinal fitness training and rehab therapy exercise based on a 3D visualization of an athlete-specific, anatomically correct spine model that is animated by wireless sensors.

Sports injuries, especially the bones and cartilages damages, pose significant challenges and require surgical intervention. Currently, tissue engineering represents a promising solution towards the repair and replacement of diseased and damaged bone tissue with engineered grafts, which can provide mechanical support during repair and regeneration of injured tissue.

The proposed project will develop an augmented reality coaching system for individualized sports training with a focus on athletes’ kinesthetic and spatial awareness.

Seed Grant Awardee: Mary Neubauer

We propose that Sport and Craft are counterparts to one another and especially connect to the body-centered, disciplined physical aspects required for both 3D art making and sport. We want to know where these skill-sets meet and recognize the similarities to approach and connection of subject matter where the culminating physical award is an object of achievement, recorded history, and desire.

Seed Grant Awardee: Jennifer Vanos

We will collaborate with community groups and high schools in South Phoenix to deploy a granular network of urban AQ and temperature sensors to support athlete health.

Seed Grant Awardee: Alaina Zanin

Our project proposes to address this community need through by (a) developing an applied non-profit internship course at ASU to develop students as empowered role models and community youth sport coaches, (b) collaborating with local youth nonprofits and schools to create new sport access sites for girls, and (c) creating an empirically-based and culturally adapted volunteer coach training course.

Seed Grant Awardee: Hyunglae Lee

We have successfully characterized foot-ankle mechanics during various postural balance and walking tasks and constructed simple yet competent biomechanics-based models. Building upon these, we aim to design and control a soft active ankle brace that is capable of adaptively changing its mechanical properties, in particular, stiffness at the ankle joint, in a task-dependent manner.

The proposed study will use sport to dissect and divest the Asian American model minority stereotype. The Asian American model minority perspective heralds Asian Americans as industrious and intellectually and academically high-achieving, yet also reinforces a caricature of Asian Americans as cold, austere, quiet “nerds.”
