Choe was also featured in The Proceedings of the ACM on Interactive, Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Technologies (IMWUT) for her work leveraging finger-worn accelerometers to closely monitor stroke survivors’ motor behaviors and use such data to design a self-monitoring system, encouraging in-home rehabilitation.
This was a large collaborative work across Seoul National University, University of Massachusetts Amherst, Heeyeon Rehabilitation Hospital, Harvard Medical School/Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, and University of Maryland.
