Dr. Jeka and some of his research team, Eric Anson, Peter Agada (both Kinesiology Graduate Students) and Joseph Owen (Undergraduate in Computer Science) were interviewed by a reporter from WTOP 103.5 FM radio about their Treadsense invention. It is currently installed at Washington Adventist Hospital in Silver Spring, with whom they have an agreement to use (beta-test) the device with patients in their physical therapy clinic. The device is used to help those with poor balance control by providing augmented sensory information while walking on a treadmill.
