Research subject

Horse riding is a popular sport among young deaf people in Sweden. A gradual decrease in visual acuity is also not very uncommon, and thus some young horse enthusiasts encounter increasing difficulties in performing their favourite sport with autonomy.

The aim of project is to provide position infor­mation in the riding school and vibratory transmitted information to support the rider’s orientation and communication.
