University of Sheffield events

I covered a couple of events at the Centre for Assistive Technology and Connected Healthcare at the University of Sheffield in the last couple of weeks.

The first was the launch of a new £1.5M research project called Big CACTUS a large randomised clinical trial of a computer programme that helps stroke survivors with speech and language.  It was wonderful to be able to photograph some of the stroke survivors who took part in the pilot study using the software.

The second was called ‘What is Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and what can we do about it?’. MCI is a condition where older people have problems with mental abilities such as thinking, knowing and remembering.

Here are the photos from the Big CACTUS event:
