AATOS

Sensors & Tools

AATOS stands for Augmented Assistive Technology Operating System. The goal behind this system is simple: to help people with a disability interact with today’s mainstream software and online applications. This system will be open-source, meaning it can be used and repurposed in a variety of different health contexts.

The system is still in early development, but it will be made to interface with the various Augmented Assistive Communication tools developed at Bruyère. These are pieces of hardware that are designed to help people with physical or cognitive disabilities to interact with today’s popular communication software (such as e-mail or smart phone applications).  Through AATOS, patients will be able to use their AAC devices to interact with communication software in a way that’s more accessible to them.
