The team is currently analyzing data from 15 initial participants and over 570 toilet transfer trials using the first generation of the Smart Toilet Transfer system. During this phase, the team has developed tools to streamline future data processing and algorithms to analyze the data across participants. The team is simultaneously developing components for a SmartBathing Transfer System, in order to test showers and bathtub transfers. Active recruitment for research participants is underway to test the functionality of the current Smart Bathroom.
