ROSE

NodeJS | HTML/CSS | May 2018 - Ongoing

        Project Rose is a cross-platform web app which uses a new innovative approach to using interactive media for healing and pain reduction. This is a collaboration project between faculty and students at Rochester Institute of Technology and the University of Washington.

        This project is under an NDA so I can't go into the details about the project except that it uses proprietary audio and video cues to help users feel better and that we built an encrypted audio/video player using MPEG-Dash and HLS

        The prototype of the project has been built and gone through the first iteration of beta testing and currently being prepped for clinical testing with a small study group (40 - 60 people) for IRB (Institutional Review Board).
